Unrenovated Machiya in Nishijin with Large Garden

Nishinjin Area, where Kyoto’s History and Culture Nurtured

The property is located in the Nishijin area, a neighborhood known for its textile industry which is rich in tradition and history. It faces Rokkenmachi Street, just one street west of Senbon Street - one of the main north-south avenues in Kyoto. The area is characterized by its calm atmosphere and the presence of traditional Machiya townhouses.
Within a 10-minute walk from the property, you can visit many historical and cultural landmarks, such as Kitano Tenmangu Shrine which is affectionately known as "Tenjin-san" by locals, and Kamishichiken, one of Kyoto's 5 major Hanamachi Geisha districts.
Nearby, you will find the Kitano Shopping Arcade, which stretches about 400m and has around 100 stores, as well as the historic Nishijin Senbon Shopping Street, which dates back to the Heian period. This makes daily shopping convenient and easy.

From the entrance to the backyard runs a "Hashiri-Niwa" corridor, flanked by 3 rooms in a typical layout often seen in Kyomachiya, known as the "one-row, three-room" arrangement. Looking up from the Hashiri-Niwa, you'll be greeted by an impressive high ceiling, creating a grand and airy atmosphere. The spacious garden features a large stone lantern, hinting at the property's former grandeur as a distinguished residence. Although the property has deteriorated over time, with some renovation, it can be restored to its former stately glory.
