One day market at a newly built KyoMachiya.
In the past few years, we celebrated the birth of "Machiya Day" (March 8th) by hosting the Machiya Market event at different KyoMachiyas throughout Kyoto city.
This year, we are going to be hosting the 3rd annual Machiya Market again at KyoTsumugi, where we have 4 newly built KyoMachiyas in the Kita Ward of Kyoto city.
At the event, we will be gathering variety of local shops for food and drinks, as well as activities such as "chalk art" which kids can enjoy.
For those considering selling or buying Machiya in Kyoto, we will also be setting up a booth for free drop in consultation.
Feel free to drop by even if you simply want to take a look at the newly built KyoMachiya, or grab a bite of local delights. We look forward to seeing you at the event.

March 8th is 「Machiya Day」
In Japanese, March is pronounced as "Machi" and 8th as "ya",
and that is how March 8th has been selected as Machiya Day.
Since 2017, March 8th has been officially registered by the Japan Anniversary Association as "Machiya Day" through Kyo-Machiya Info Center, which Hachise is also a member of.
As more and more Kyo-Machiyas are being demolished each year, Machiya Day aims to promote Kyo-Machiya's historical and cultural value in order to help preserve these treasures for years to come.
The week of Mar 3rd to Mar 11th (2018) is also set as Machiya week where local shops host their own events at Kyo-Machiyas throughout Kyoto city. If you wish to learn more about Machiya Day or Machiya week, please access the website below.
