'Akane-an' machiya house: a traditional Kyoto holiday house (vacation rental) ideally located in central Kyoto, just a 5-min. walk to Nijo Castle, a UNESCO world heritage site.
Immerse yourself in the tradition and beauty of this 120 year-old machiya. Discover 'Akane-an' with its traditional ‘mushikomado’ slit windows, wooden latticework and white earthen exterior.
As you walk through the front door, marvel at the sky-high ceiling and exposed wooden architecture above. A classic feature of machiya houses, this open space leads you into the Japanese living room adorned in calming 'akane' red. Gather with your guests in the living room, and admire the hand-woven 'ajiro-tenjo' wicker ceiling and look out onto your very own private 'tsuboniwa' garden.
Relax in the aromatic ‘hinoki’ bathtub, and in the bedroom upstairs with high ceilings and classic woodwork. Enjoy a traditional, one-of-kind stay at ‘Akane-an’.
Reserve this entire traditional machiya holiday house today. It’s perfect for couples, and groups of families & friends who wish to experience the charm of an authentic machiya together.
