二人司町 新旧であう京町家(京都市下京区二人司町)

Kyomachiya with a blend of old & new

Introducing an unrenovated Kyomachiya located near Shimabara Gate, in the Umekoji Park's northern area. This charming property is situated on a street adorned with retro houses that exude a nostalgic charm of the old town. While some modifications have been made to the exterior and the 1F interior, the essence of a traditional Machiya is retained in features such as the Engawa porch facing the garden, the staircase hall, and the rooms on the 2F.

Areawhere tradition meets modernity

Located just one train stop west of Kyoto Station, in the heart of the Umekoji area, stands the property. Nestled in a nostalgic street surrounded by retro houses, it perfectly captures the essence of the old town charm. With its proximity to the historic "Nishihonganji Temple" on the west and the vibrant "Shimabara" Geisha district, this area offers a unique blend of tradition and liveliness.
Nearby, beyond the JR railway tracks lies the "Kyoto Research Park", a hub for research and development-based companies, driving innovation and ushering in new industries. This harmonious coexistence of old and new makes this area an ideal locale, where the past and present seamlessly merge.

Plancurrent floor plan

This property is one of the 5-terraced-houses, facing a street that exudes a retro atmosphere. Since cars do not pass directly in front of the house, it offers a safe location, ideal for families with children. As you enter the front entrance on the 1st floor, you'll find an 8-mat-sized Western-style room with modern flooring which create a contemporary ambiance, while the Japanese-style room facing the Engawa porch and the staircase hall on the 2nd floor retain the charming aspects of the original townhouse when it was built. The garden at the back of the house is brightly lit by sunlight streaming in from the alley behind the building (※please note that the alley is not a passageway).

  • Modern Western-style Room

  • 2F with a Machiya atmosphere
