Machiya House

Ideally located in the heart of Gion, this traditional Japanese townhouse is fitted with chic décor inspired by Japanese aesthetics -- this property will provide you with all the necessities needed to make your stay comfortable.







This traditional townhouse is ideal for anyone looking to truly explore Kyoto — from the most well-known sightseeing attractions, to the backstreets of this historical city, you’ll be able to explore the city inside and out.

Hanamikoji Street — a few minutes walk away is a beautiful street to visit in the early morning, or during the cool evening.

Kennin-ji Temple is just around the corner — for a relaxing morning start, stop by this temple for an early morning Zen meditation class.



A machiya house that embraces the idea of “wabi-sabi” (the art of finding beauty and pathos in simplicity and imperfection).

Surrounded by the history and elegance of Kyoto, “Azuki-an” blends well with the surrounding traditional townscape. The exterior incorporates dark brown latticework, white plaster walls, and Ichimonji-gawara (roof tiles resembling the kanji character “一”) to revitalize the traditional design of the Kyo-machiya. Please enjoy your stay in this comfortable space that exemplifies the beautiful unity of modernism and tradition.



From entranceway, you will notice that guest rooms are decorated with colorful mosaic tiles. These custom-made glass pieces are reminiscent of the Taisho period, which adds a hint of playfulness to the property.

Living Room

The custom-made glass windows and doors arranged around the room allow for the natural light to filter through into the living space. The mosaic tiling of the floor, which reflects the same playfulness of the windows and doors, is a brilliant expression of traditional architecture.
The room is furnished with sofas for your relaxation and radiant under floor heating will warm your feet during the cold winter season.


Open the artisan-crafted glass door, which has a unique design that uses 13 sections of glass to reveal the kitchen space. Enjoy cooking with locally bought ingredients, enjoy a relaxing time while you sample some sweets purchased during your travels.


You will find a fully modern bathroom space that exudes both simplicity and the traditional “wa” style. A sleek white ceramic sink, paired with jet-black tiles creates a soothing atmosphere in the washroom.

Enjoy a relaxing bath in our custom-made bath tub designed with white mosaic tiles that overlooks the courtyard. Walls made of “Hinoki (Japanese cypress)” create an even softer atmosphere to heal the mind and body from your travel fatigue.


This courtyard provides you with a glimpse of Japan’s distinct four seasons, while inviting light throughout the entire house. You will find a stone “tsukubai” washbasin, greenery typically found throughout Japan, stepping stones, and more in this traditionally designed Japanese garden.
