Akebono-an

Exuding a calm and inviting atmosphere, Akebono-an machiya house combines rich, dark wooden features along with natural light to brighten up the entire property. From the glass doors that look out into the garden, to the skylight that has been installed above the stairs, “hikari” (光、light) becomes the main focal point of this charming home.

The stairway is fully enveloped in traditional washi paper — handmade Japanese paper made by the famous Kurotaniwashi craftsmen– of a cerulean blue. This beautiful washi paper showcases techniques that evoke images of the past, while the vivid blue color adds a touch of modernity.

A cozy machiya house that incorporates a sleek design within a traditional space --Hikari (光、light) becomes the main focal point of this charming home.

The stairway is fully enveloped in traditional washi paper — handmade Japanese paper made by the famous Kurotaniwashi craftsmen– of a cerulean blue. This beautiful washi paper showcases techniques that evoke images of the past, while the vivid blue color adds a touch of modernity.

Just one station away from the main Kyoto Station, this machiya house is the perfect getaway for you during your time in Kyoto. From the station, travel far North to the Golden Pavillion, or head East towards the stone-cobbled streets of Gion.

The Arashiyama bamboo forest is to your west, while Fushimi Inari Shrine lies to your East. We also recommend visiting the impressive gardens of Katsura Rikyu Imperial Villa or stop by Jōnan-gū Shrine — an enchanting garden that showcases ume (梅) flowers in the spring.
