Renovated Machiya Inn North of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine


A peaceful and Kyoto-like residential area
approx. 6 min. walk from Kitano Tenmangu Shrine

This property is located a little north of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, which is famous for its blessings for academic success. The area is dotted with many historical sites such as Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion) and Hirano Shrine which is famous for its cherry blossoms (both are within 1 km of the property). This area also has a history of prosperity from the Meiji period to the Showa period with the Nishijin textile industry which produced high-quality silk fabrics. Here you can enjoy a townscape with a Kyoto-like atmosphere, with rows of Machiya townhouses that have been involved in textile production.


While having a facade with a Machiya atmosphere, the interior has been renovated with a modern taste.
The atrium in the living-dining-kitchen is a remnant space from the days when looms were placed here as a textile workshop. Now it has been renovated into a living room with a sense of openness with the large beam that serenely tells the history of this house. You can enjoy the view of the garden through the window of the bathroom during your relaxing bathtime.
