Sunlit House in a Quiet Alley


A house nestled in a quiet residential area,
away from the hustle and bustle of the city

Shichiku area in the northern part of Kyoto City.

This area is not only home to traditional Kyoto shrines and temples but also a growing number of trendy cafes and shops, making it a delightful place to explore. Additionally, it's situated close to nature, with the banks of the Kamo River just a 6-minute walk away (approx. 461m), providing a peaceful retreat from everyday noise.

Harmonizing with nature while being surrounded by attractive shops, this area is ideal not only for a residence but also as a combined home-cum-office or atelier.

Around the property, you'll find supermarkets, drugstores, and convenience stores, making it a very livable environment. Recently, unique cafes and shops have started to appear, making it a notable spot for strolling and exploration.

Kitaoji Station (about an 18-minute walk) is home to the bustling Aeon Mall Kitaoji, which attracts many visitors daily.

Nearby is one of Kyoto's main thoroughfares, Horikawa Street. With frequent bus services, you can easily reach Kyoto Station and the central Shijo area. This accessibility is one of the key attractions of this area.



Despite being located at the end of an alley, the 2nd floor of the property features high ceilings and an open atmosphere. The room with windows is bright and well-ventilated, offering comfort despite its secluded location. There is also a small garden at the back.

With numerous rooms, this property is ideal as a second house for couples or as a family home for those with children. A convenient-sized property recommended as an affordable residence.
