Located on the northern side of the Kamo River Delta, where the Kamo River stream and Takano River split, "Shimogamo" in Sakyo Ward is an area known for its blend of historic, retro residences and sophisticated modern homes. This elegant neighborhood, surrounded by clear air and abundant nature, offers a tranquil environment that attracts many people from both inside and outside Kyoto who seek a permanent residence.

The property we are introducing is an unrenovated Kyomachiya, about a 5-minute walk (approx. 340m) from Shimogamo Shrine. It is situated on a quiet street away from the busy main roads and can be considered for use as a residence, a second home, or a combined office residence.

For those who dream of a "life close to rich nature, yet conveniently near the city center", this property is highly recommended.


The Shimogamo area is renowned for its large, elegant residences, making it one of Kyoto's premier residential neighborhoods. The proximity to the world heritage site of Shimogamo Shrine allows residents to enjoy the beauty of nature close at hand.

Public transportation is convenient with local bus stops and Keihan Demachiyanagi Station within walking distance. The Demachiyanagi Shopping Arcade, lined with supermarkets and traditional retail shops, is easily accessible by bicycle, ensuring you have everything you need for daily living.



Some parts of the property have been partially dismantled, with the interior materials removed.

This allows you to see the condition of the structural pillars and beams. Although the property is aged and requires renovation, the exterior retains the charm of its original construction, and some of the pillars and preserved elements can be reused.
