LOCAL INFO

DETAILS

Machiya houses found in Kyoto are unique in that while some may be found nestled between modern-day residential houses, others are found hidden at the end of a quiet alleyway — providing a sense of mystery and intrigue to the charming historical house.

Ichie-an is one such machiya house, as it is ideally located near major streets and transportation options, but hidden away within a narrow alley that creates a world of its own.
