Kyomachiya in Nishishichijo


a versatile Kyomachiya
for either residential use or guesthouse operation

This Kyomachiya, previously used as a guesthouse, exudes quintessential Kyoto charm. With a 6 rooms + dining-kitchen layout that is not overly spacious, it offers ample space for a dual-family residence or a combination of workplace and home.

Situated in a quiet residential area, it is located in the Umekoji area, a burgeoning tourist spot rich with greenery. The property boasts convenient access: it's about a 12-minute walk to JR Tanbaguchi Station on the Sanin mainline, and about a 13-minute walk to JR Umekoji-Kyotonishi Station on the same line.


Walking distance from Umekoji-Kyotonishi Station.
While nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, the area around Umekoji-Kyotonishi Station is bustling with family-friendly facilities, serving as a new sub-gate for Kyoto tourism. Just one station away by train from JR Kyoto Station, known as the "Gateway to Kyoto", this location offers excellent convenience. With several supermarkets and convenience stores, daily shopping is never a hassle here.

Nearby, you'll find the community hub of Umekoji Park, the Kyoto Aquarium, and the Kyoto Railway Museum, which are perfect for leisurely strolls. Additionally, the Kyoto Research Park, a center for new industries, and the Kyoto City Central Wholesale Market, which supports Kyoto's culinary scene, are within easy reach, both offering a variety of dining options. This area promises a dynamic lifestyle, blending daily living with the delights of Kyoto exploration.

With its dual appeal as a tourist destination and a serene residential area, this property is perfect for both a guesthouse operation and a second home.



The property underwent exterior painting, installation of a new bathroom and washbasin, and re-flooring with Tatami mats in July 2020.
The high-design washbasin, window glass, and sliding door handles feature intricate decorations that exude a retro charm. The dining-kitchen area, equipped with an IH stove, has a contemporary feel with a touch of modern Japanese style. Solid single boards are used for the pillars and floorboards, which are both beautiful and eye-catching.

From the hallway, you can enjoy views of the garden, which brings in ample natural light and good ventilation, ensuring a comfortable living environment. The frontage is a spacious 7.5m wide, enhancing the sense of openness of this property.
