Unrenovated Kyomachiya 6 min. from Omiya Sta.


a Kyomachiya townhouse with a Japanese ambiance in a convenient location

Located in the lively Saiin/Omiya area, which is close to the heart of Kyoto and offers a wide range of dining and shopping options, we are pleased to introduce a Kyomachiya nestled slightly south of the bustling streets. The northern unit of this two-unit terraced townhouse retains its traditional Japanese ambiance, capturing the essence of its original construction. It offers a high level of flexibility in its use, allowing it to be transformed into a spacious residence, office, or second home in a convenient location.


The property is situated in the "Mibu" area, which is home to historical sites closely associated with the Shinsengumi, a renowned group from the late Edo period. It is within walking distance of Omiya Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line, Shijo-Omiya Station on the Keifuku Electric Railroad, and a short distance from Tambaguchi Station on the JR Sanin Line, providing convenient commuting access to various parts of Kyoto and Osaka.


Since the property has not been renovated, you can freely create a space that reflects your personal preferences and style. A harmonious streetscape can be maintained by renovating this lovely townhouse while preserving its traditional charm. As the property opens up various possibilities for use, how about a well-planned personalized layout in a convenient location?


This Kyomachiya retains the charm of its original construction, with old wooden fittings and Tatami flooring in most rooms. The subdued lighting on the first floor and the wooden handrail on the staircase reflect the traditional ambiance of a machiya townhouse. However, due to a period of being unoccupied, some renovations and updates are necessary to make it functional.
