A Former Kimono Shop Kyomachiya


A spacious site within walking distance of the Karasuma and Tozai subway lines.

The property is on a very spacious site - with a main house (Kyomachiya) used as a store, a detached annex used as a residence, and a two-story warehouse, making a two-family house or a workplace with a residence possible with such plenty of space.

The property is conveniently located about 100m from the Fucho-mae (Prefectural Office) intersection, with Marutamachi Station on the subway Karasuma Line in about a 6-minute walk distance. Within a 10-minute walk, there is also the Nijojo-mae Station on the subway Tozai Line.


The property is located between the Kyoto Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle, facing Nishinotoin St. which is said to have existed during the Heian period, with its name coming from the Nishinotoin River that flowed along the street. The dyeing industry that used the river's water flourished the area in the past. Nearby, there is also Karasuma St. which is dotted with large companies and the area is still bustling with many stores nowadays. There are also plenty of supermarkets and convenience stores in the area that provides convenient daily shopping.

Mikane Jinja, a small neighborhood shrine that is famous for its good fortune in praying for financial success; and the Kyoto International Manga Museum, which manga lovers should visit at least once, are within a short walking distance.



The quaint main house is in good condition, and the historical fittings are still in good working order. The Hibukuro aisle on the first floor is very impressive, together with Tatami rooms in which fine transoms and alcoves remain. The garden has been well cared for and remains beautiful.

Unlike the main house, the annex with a spacious living room overlooking the garden is a modern residence. The well on the south side of the house has not dried up and can be used for purposes other than drinking.
