Seasonal Scenery of the Neighborhood
Gion-Shirakawa River, lined with cherry trees in spring.
The cherry blossoms filled the cobblestone street like a haze, giving it an indescribable atmosphere.
If you go east on Furumonzen St. at the end of this alley, you will see summer willows swaying in the wind, the Shirakawa River flowing leisurely, and the Kuromon Gate of Chionin Temple.
The Shirakawa River is just a one-minute walk away from the house.
Japanese maples in red color the Gion-Shirakawa River in autumn.
At the end of Chionin St. is the Sanmon Gate,
the entrance to Chionin Temple.
Under the clear winter sky, the majestic and grandiose appearance of the gate is a scenery that you shouldn't miss.
The house is designed in a blend of Japanese and Western styles. One person can live comfortably with plenty of space, while two people can live with just the right size. If you place a desk in front of the Tsuboniwa garden, you will be able to work or pursue your hobbies while enjoying the view of the Japanese garden. Close to the station and the center of Kyoto City, this is recommended as a vacation house as a base for sightseeing or remote work.
