Japanese Kominka Style Shop in OharaScroll
Ohara, located at the northern base of Mt. Hiei in Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, is a serene countryside surrounded by beautiful mountains, where the idyllic rural landscape has been preserved.
Ohara boasts numerous historic sites, including the ancient nunnery "Jakkoin Temple" with over 1400 years of history and the prestigious Tendai sect temple "Sanzenin". It has long been known as a place of retreat for nobles and devotees seeking solace away from the bustling city, with dignified temples and its ever-changing natural beauty throughout the seasons that have always been a source of healing and inspiration for people's hearts.
Among them, the garden of Sanzenin Temple is the most famous scenic spot in Ohara. With velvety moss covering the ground, the garden presents an enigmatic charm that transforms with the seasons and weather, showcasing cherry blossoms, hydrangeas, autumn foliage, and snow, making it a place of endless fascination.
This time, we'd like to introduce a shop designed with a traditional Japanese Komika-style, situated near the entrance to Sanzenin Temple adorned by a tunnel of vibrant autumn foliage. This property is recommended for those seeking a shop catering to domestic and international tourists, or for those who wish to start a business in this scenic land.
The "Oharame's Path", which leads to Sanzenin Temple in Ohara, is lined with beautiful autumn foliage along a clear stream, featuring souvenir shops and light food stalls catering to tourists. This property is situated at the entrance of Sanzenin Temple near the "Gotenmon" gate and along the way to Shorinin Temple and Jikkoin Temple. An easily accessible location for visitors to Sanzenin Temple.
Access from Kyoto City is approximately one hour by Kyoto Bus. Upon arriving at the Ohara bus stop, one is greeted by a peaceful rural landscape that feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This area truly lives up to its reputation as a tranquil mountain village, providing a serene escape from urban life.
The property features a glass-covered shop area along the approach, with a hall and kitchen used as a dining facility located at the back of the shop. The northern side of the property is bordered by a flowing river, providing a refreshing sound of flowing water when the windows are open. Facing the eastern side of the approach, one can enjoy the view of Sanzenin Temple's stone walls and the vibrant autumn foliage, while the western side offers a picturesque view of Ohara's mountain landscape. This prime location offers a delightful and auspicious setting.
