Kyo-Machiya North of DaitokujiFully renovated in July 2021
A quaint cobblestone pavement of Daitokuji Temple
Daitokuji Temple is lined with more than 20 sub-temples in the precincts. If you walk along the cobblestone pavement that connects each, you can feel the historical atmosphere of the temple, which is said to be closely related to Sen no Rikyu. It takes about 6 minutes (about 453m) to walk from the property to this spot.
Approach to Imamiya Shrine & the specialty "Aburi-mochi"
The scenic storefront that faces the cobblestone approach to Imamiya Shrine is a long-established store of the famous "Aburi-mochi", a bamboo skewered and charcoal grilled balls of glutinous rice cake mochi. Imamiya Shrine was originally used as a place to calm the plague in the early Heian period, and it is said that eating this Aburi-mochi has the benefit of warding off evil. It takes about 5 minutes (about 350m) to walk from the property to this spot.
Machiyas lined-up with a sense of unity
This property faces a street lined with five Kyo-Machiyas that may have been built in the same period. The "Mushiko-mado" lattice windows of the same design and the Kyo-Machiyas with a series of "Koshi" lattices are one of the landscapes that we strive to preserve over time.
- A walk-in closet where light enters softly from the Mushiko-mado lattice window. It is a nice point to have plenty of storage on the 2F.
- The atrium at the top of the kitchen is one of the designs of the Kyo-Machiya called "Hibukuro". The plaster wall used at the top of the space is also from the original house.
- The approach between the building and the adjoining road in front is large enough to allow you to park your bike or bicycle with ease.
- A covered laundry drying space in the corner of the garden where you can do the laundry even on a sudden rainy day. A position with privacy that can stay out of sight from indoor or the neighbors.

Daitokuji Temple, a temple with a quiet atmosphere that is typical of Zen Buddhism, has many sub-temples in the precincts, but many of them are not open to the public. It is also called "Daitokuji of the tea ceremony" because it has a deep connection with the tea ceremony and most temples have a tea room.
Approx. 9 min walk/650m
