Villa house with shop in Sagano

A scenic land spreading out at the foot of Mt. Ogura

「小倉山 峰のもみぢ葉 心あらば
今ひとたびの みゆき待たなむ」 --藤原忠平
(If the maple leaves on Mt. Ogura have hearts, I'd like to make them to be as beautiful as they are until next Emperor's pilgrimage. –-by Tadahira Fujiwara)

Praising the beautiful autumn leaves of Mt. Ogura, this is one of the poets from the famous classical Japanese anthology “One Hundred Poems from One Hundred Poets (Ogura Hyakunin Isshu)”.
Once you step into Sagano from the crowded Arashiyama area, you will notice that the surrounding scenery changes completely. During the Heian period, it was prospered as a villa district for aristocrats and is one of the most scenic spots in Kyoto that has been loved by many since ancient times. Autumn leaves, bamboo grove, rural scenery... Here you can feel and experience the history of Kyoto directly.

The first thing you will notice is the large, well-maintained garden. The time spent at this house with the garden view will surely be exceptional. The shop area is relatively compact, where your guests can enjoy cozy and homey hospitality. Taking advantage of Sagano's locality, this is a perfect property for resident or second house together with a hideaway Japanese restaurant, cafe, and gallery. Located in a quiet and serene area, it is also recommended for use as an atelier.

The main entrance of the property is on the south side. While it is convenient to have toilets on both floors, you can also sit back and relax on the 2nd floor with the scenery of Mt. Ogura.
