The name 'Kohaku' refers to amber, while 'an' refers to a cozy retreat. The rich, golden hue of amber is reflected throughout the house, creating a warm & inviting atmosphere that is perfect to retreat to after a day of exploring Kyoto. This machiya vacation house has been designed to provide a space suitable for both large groups of family and friends, to smaller groups & couples looking for a spacious hideaway.
The 'hikiburu' high ceiling that stretches up from the kitchen to the second floor, and the fresh 'tsuboniwa' inner garden bring a sense of spaciousness to the house, and are architectural elements classic to machiya houses. Enjoy a relaxing and traditional stay at "Kohaku-an".
