Shimabara, located just about a 3-minute walk from the property, is a prestigious and historically significant Geisha district with over 400 years of history that is renowned throughout Japan. The culture of the area has been passed down to the present day, and it is home to the only current Tayu (highest-ranking Geisha) in Japan, who belongs to Shimabara's Wachigaiya, a Geisha house that combined with a tea house. The stone-paved streets surrounding Shimabara exude a serene beauty, offering a distinct atmosphere from the bustling Higashiyama area.

A short walk eastward from the property leads to Nishi-Honganji Temple. Here, visitors can participate in the morning service experience, chanting sutras together with the monks. Additionally, an annual traditional event called "Osusuharai" takes place on December 20th. During this event, participants hold bamboo poles in both hands and simultaneously strike the Tatami mats in the temple, creating a cloud of dust that is then swept away with large fans. By participating in such Buddhist rituals, one can seek purification of the mind and body.



Unlike the typical image of a cramped and dark Machiya, this house exudes a bright and spacious atmosphere. On the 1st floor, there is a Japanese-style room facing the street which is perfect for moments of concentration and a larger Japanese-style room for relaxing with family and friends. With the dining area positioned in between, it creates a sense of distance where you can perceive each other's presence without interfering. On the 2nd floor, there is a generously-sized Western-style room that is ideal for a master bedroom. While it is suitable for residential use, why not consider operating it as an accommodation where tourists can relax as if they were in their own homes?
