Together with Machiyas

Hachise, as a Kyoto-based real estate firm, has been taking an active role in saving old Kyo-machiyas and Kyoto cityscape since 1956.
Starting from 2014 we have launched our global website to provide real estate information of Kyoto and promote the traditional Kyo-machiyas to global customers.

“Bringing out the beauty and value in old houses” has always been one of our missions, and we believe that every single old house has its uniqueness with historical & cultural values behind it. With the concept of sustainability becoming increasingly important globally, not limited to Japanese Machiyas, this time we’d like to also celebrate the value of old-beauty and the diversity of traditional architectures all over the world, and you are all invited to join us!

Together with Machiyas, let’s promote the beauty of old buildings over the world.
