Guest Speakers (Machiya Owners)

★Richard Bolt

Richard and his wife Masami became interested in settling in Kyoto about 2 years ago in preparation for retirement after living and working throughout South East Asia, the Pacific and Africa for 35 years.

Kyomachiya style houses quickly caught their interest in searching for an attractive, affordable and functional home that reflects Kyoto living traditions and culture. Their home in Shimogyu ward continues to be a process of settling into a comfortable home with the key characteristics of a Kyomachiya, as well as integrating into the local community.
