Spacious Kyomachiya in Murasakino

a neighborhood rooted in traditional living - Murasakino area

Introducing a Kyomachiya located approx. a 10-minute walk north of the famous Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, which is renowned for its blessings in academic achievement. Within a radius of about 1km, you'll find notable attractions such as Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion) and the scenic Heian-Jingu Shrine known for its cherry blossoms. This area is also dotted with numerous historical sites and holds a significant place in history as it flourished during the Meiji to Showa eras as the home of the prestigious silk-weaving industry known as "Nishijin-ori." You can experience the quintessential Kyoto atmosphere with rows of traditional Kyomachiya townhouses that have been involved in the weaving industry.

Area Information

The Murasakino area offers a convenient and vibrant lifestyle with a variety of shops essential for daily living, including supermarkets and convenience stores. Just a short walk away is Senbon St., a bustling street lined with shops and eateries. Continuing south from there, you will find Kitano Shopping Arcade, a traditional shopping street with longstanding specialty stores that have been passed down through generations.
About a 4-minute walk away is the nearest bus stop, "Kenryuko-Mae Stop". From there, it takes approx. 31 min. to reach Kyoto Station and about 28 min. to reach Shijo-Kawaramachi, the central shopping district of Kyoto.


Current Floor Plan

The surrounding area still preserves the atmosphere of textile workshops, and you can hear the rhythmic sounds of weaving machines. This property is a unique "Oriyadate" style townhouse, which was originally a weaving workshop.
Inside, it is a mixed-use townhouse with separate spaces for residential living and weaving. The layout is designed in a way that the sounds of weaving do not disturb the living areas, with the workshop located towards the back. This distinct architectural structure of Kyomachiya creates a spacious and open workspace with high ceilings, reflecting the remnants of its former weaving heritage.


Renovation Plan

By converting the traditional workspace located at the back of the building, a characteristic feature of the "Oriyadate" (weaver's house), into a living space, it is possible to create an open and spacious area with a pleasant high ceiling, making it a relaxing and refreshing space.
