Immerse yourself in the tradition and beauty of an authentic machiya of Kyoto. This 120 year-old Kyoto machiya is located on a quiet stone-paved street, just 520 meters from World Heritage Site, Nijo Castle.

World Heritage Site, Nijo Castle, once served as the residence of the Tokugawa shoguns in Kyoto, who ruled over Japan for more than 260 years. It now houses over 1,000 important cultural treasures that are a testament to the prosperity and power of the Tokugawa shogun era. "Akane-an" lies just below the south east side of this historic castle. Amidst the concrete buildings, which show the changes that have taken place over time, this kyo-machiya continues to convey a sense of history.
