Former Dyehouse South of Nijo Castle


A livable location with high accessibility

Located at the knees of the world heritage site "Nijo Castle", this property has 3-way access to JR, subway, and Hankyu Railway, making it convenient for commuting to work or school in various parts of the city. The nearby Sanjokai shopping arcade is lined with supermarkets and drug stores, so you won't have any trouble with your daily shopping. Numbers of diners, such as Japanese cuisine and Teppanyaki grilled restaurants, can also be found around the neighborhood.

With elementary and junior high schools within a 10-minute walk distance, this is also an area recommended for the child-rearing generation.

The floor plan of this property is the "Unagi-no-nedoko (eel's bed)" interior that is often seen in Kyoto, with a long earthen floor that spreads out to the innermost part. The kitchen, which is located on the continuous earthen floor which runs from the entrance to the back, was called a "Tori-niwa" hallway. In a traditional layout of a Japanese house, this Tori-niwa is a flexible space with various functions: a place for serving guests, a passageway, and also a key to ventilation.
At the end of the Tori-niwa is a remnant of a dyehouse factory. How about starting a new hobby such as pottery, or making it into a playground for children? A free space for various usages; let's leave the rest to your imagination!

This property does not have a bath. In Kyoto, where many old buildings remain, it is not uncommon to find a house without a bath. Instead, despite the number is decreasing year by year, community-based public baths are scattered throughout the city.

Within a 10-minute walk, there are public baths such as Nagaike-yu (external Japanese link), Thoron Onsen Inari (external Japanese link), Tahara-yu (external Japanese link), Imomatsu-Onsen (external Japanese link), etc.
You may be able to enjoy a new experience of "public bath-hoping", which is a unique local culture in Kyoto!
