2-Storey House Renovated in 2021 
A 4 Rooms +LDK residence just right for a family of three

A renovated two-storey house on the west side of Toji Temple, a world cultural heritage site.

The neighborhood is a quiet residential area, one step from the busy main street. But if you go south, you can find Kujo St. which is the route of several buses, making it a convenient location for access to various parts of Kyoto city.

With a total number of 4 rooms and a Living-Dining-Kitchen, this is a house with some leeway for a family of three.

Private rooms can be secured for both parents and children, and the extra room can be used as a guestroom for visitors. It can also be used according to the lifestyle of the family, such as a study for the father, a hobby room for the mother, or a playroom for the child.


The property is located in a quiet residential area on the west side of a UNESCO World Heritage Site - Toji Temple, which is the head temple of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism.

Toji Temple, built around the same time as Heiankyo, is now the only existing Heiankyo remains and was considered to be one of the two major temples of the time along with Saiji Temple. Since then, Toji has been watching over the city of Kyoto for about 1200 years.
There are many designated national treasures and important cultural properties in the precincts. During the cherry blossom and autumn leaves season, the precinct will be lit up by a special illumination at night.

There are elementary and junior high schools not far from the property.
Also, if you go a little further, you can find plenty of living facilities and outing spots such as AEON MALL KYOTO, Umekoji Park, and Kyoto Aquarium, which you can visit with your family. A living environment where you can enjoy convenient town life and abundant nature.

With a land site facing the southeast corner, which is especially popular among corner lots, it brings a sense of openness due to approaching the road in two directions and is characterized by good sunlight and ventilation.
