Kyomachiya with a stately facade


Situated just off the intersection of Kitayama Street and Horikawa Street, this impressive Kyomachiya is nestled quietly at the end of an alley.

The Kita Ward, where this property is located, is a popular area known for its beautiful natural surroundings and harmonious blend of modern and traditional elements.
Kitayama Street and Horikawa Street are major thoroughfares with frequent bus services heading towards Shijo and Kyoto Station, making bus travel a convenient option for getting around the city.

Exterior: The facade features an unusually wide frontage for a Kyomachiya, giving it a sturdy and historic presence.
Kitchen: The kitchen retains the traditional design elements of a Toriniwa aisle and Hibukuro. The double-height ceiling includes high windows that allow natural light to pour in.
Tatami room
Interior: The interior boasts a splendid Tokonoma alcove in the Japanese-style room. Though the house shows its age, it is in good condition, and simply replacing the Tatami mats would transform the atmosphere significantly.
Porch and garden
Garden: A beautiful garden enhances the living experience, offering a luxurious Engawa porch where you can enjoy the greenery and add richness to your daily life.
2F Tatami room
2nd floor: The 2nd floor features large windows that allow plenty of natural light and fresh air to flow through the space.
