With more than forty "machiya" (町家, traditional Japanese townhouses) spread throughout Kanazawa and Kyoto, choose to stay in the perfect machiya house to best fit your needs and travel plans.
Machiya are traditional townhouses, typically two-story, which previously served as both a residence, and place of commerce for merchants and craftsmen. When you stay with Machiya Residence Inn, you are able to rent out an entire traditional townhouse all to yourself. Each house has been carefully renovated to maintain the traditional design, while updated to meet the modern needs of our guests.
Experience life as a local, enjoy the abundance of attractions and sightseeing locations, discover beloved neighborhood restaurants, hidden specialty shops, and secret sightseeing spots surrounding your machiya house. Live like a local!
