Home of a former
pottery workshop in Imagumano,
known for its Kiyomizu Ware kilns
Nestled on the mountainside, Imagumano, also known as the "slope town" boasts a rare gradient in Kyoto's topography.
The property is surrounded by Kiyomizu Ware kilns, reflecting its craft-oriented history as it once served as a pottery workshop.
Imagumano offers a serene environment with beautiful cherry blossom parks known to locals and proximity to a convenient local shopping street for day-to-day needs - a perfect setting for a slow-paced lifestyle.
Behind the private pathway, there is a spacious garden and a roofed terrace, making this property unique with the entire ground floor of the main house being a "Doma" (earthen floor).
Although the private pathway, terrace, "Doma" space, and garden seem like disparate elements, with their unknown but boundless potential, they offer the possibility for many exciting uses and ideas.

Nestled near the mountains, Imagumano offers an ever-changing scenery reflecting the four seasons of Higashiyama, allowing residents to fully enjoy the early arrival of each season. A bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this area is attractive for its quiet and leisurely lifestyle.
While it might seem a bit distant from the central areas on the map, having a bicycle makes it easy to reach places like Tofukuji Station and Kyoto Station. Within a 10-minute walk, Imagumano Shopping Street provides access to local shops and supermarkets for convenient daily shopping.
Moreover, within walking distance, you'll find the sizable "Japanese Red Cross Society Kyoto Daiichi Hospital", providing reassurance in case of emergencies.

Introducing our "imaginary plan" that envisions a renovation utilizing the spacious garden and terrace. This dream-filled plan is packed with ideas and possibilities unique to this property, including a pottery studio, gallery, shared farm, and a space for enjoying BBQ. Take a moment to explore this plan while letting your imagination run wild, envisioning life in this space.
1Pottery Studio & Classroom
The 1st floor of the main house, utilizing the earthen floor that once served as a pottery studio, is transformed into a "space of creation" suitable for a ceramics classroom or personal studio, focusing on Kyoto's Kiyomizu Ware. The layout is designed to maintain the owner's privacy by segregating the water facilities for studio users. The 2nd floor is then envisioned as a private space exclusively for the owner. With separate toilet and shower spaces, the building can also function seamlessly as a live-work unit.
2Terrace & Kiln
To facilitate the firing of works created in the studio, a kiln is placed on the terrace. The expansive garden is designated as a shared farm that allows users to cook with freshly harvested vegetables in the adjacent outdoor space or on the terrace. This facility is designed to offer an experience where individuals can cook using vegetables they've grown and enjoy them in dishes crafted from their own pottery. Transforming this space into a venue for casual agricultural experiences and creative activities could be an exciting proposition.
