Petite house facing Bukkoji-Honbyo Temple in Higashiyama

a petite house in a small approach

Located between Sanjo St. and Bukkoji-Honbyo Temple, this property is reached through an approach to the house. Completely renovated in August 2022, this 2LDK house is just the right size for one or two persons, and is located in a tourist area with many famous and historic sites such as Heian Jingu Shrine and Yasaka Shrine. Kawaramachi, the busy downtown in Kyoto, is also not far away, making it an easy area to live.



This property has just been completely renovated by the owner in August 2022 with the concept of "a small but cozy house".
On the 1F a large window at the back of the living-dining-kitchen brings in ample light, creating a compact but comfortable space where one does not feel cramped.
The 2F has a room with a workspace for remote work, and a bedroom with a calm atmosphere, where the original existing shoji screens have been repaired and reused. The room with a workspace overlooks the temple grounds and lush greenery, a view rarely seen in the center of Kyoto.
