Stately Japanese house west of Kamo River

Kyoto-like streetscape and stately appearance

North of Daitokuji Temple, the Shichiku area stretches north and south of Kitayama St. It has been a residential area for a long time, and some Kyoto-like buildings remain here and there. Among these, we would like to introduce a property with a magnificent tile-roofed exterior that catches the eye and a spacious interior that could be used in various ways.


The Shichiku area has a long history as a residential area and is therefore very convenient. Supermarkets and convenience stores are within walking distance, and the AEON MALL Kitaoji located at Kitaoji Station (a 13-minute walk) attracts many people every day. Recently, some local stores with individuality have been opened, making the area attract attention as spots for strolling.



The house has an impressive "Irimoya-style" hip-and-gable tiled roof that catches your eyes from the outside. A round Shitajimado window welcomes you at the entrance, and the floor plan is spacious and easy to use. The Japanese-style room on the second floor is bright and well-lit thanks to a large opening, and the veranda and tokonoma (alcove) have been preserved with a traditional Japanese atmosphere.
