Kyoto, the former capital of Japan, was spared from any major destruction during the second World War -- allowing for traces of its past and history of the ancient capital to still be revered and marvelled at today.

The 京町家 (kyo-machiya house) is just one of many cultural wonders that still remain within Kyoto to this day. Found to the east of the Kamogawa River, and with convenient access to some of Kyoto’s most well-known and hidden gems throughout the city.

This Kyoto-style machiya house, built over 100 years ago, captures the tradition and unique history of the city. By carefully renovating the architecture, and incorporating both traditional and modern elements, the charm and design of Masarigusa will provide you with a serene space within the bustling city.
