Shouki-sama, displayed above the edge of the roof, is a deity believed to protect the home.
"Momohana-an" features a traditional Japanese interior with tatami (woven-straw) floors and shoji paper sliding screens. Although it is located near one of the busiest shopping districts in Kyoto, this machiya is tucked away from all of the hustle and bustle of the city to provide you with a moment of tranquility during your time in this historical city. Like many traditional machiya, "Momohana-an"served not only as a living space, but also as a store. After entering through the lattice door in the entranceway, you see the 'Mise-no-ma' space on your right.
The 'Mise-no-ma' is a traditional part of a Kyo-machiya floor plan, used as a space to conduct business with guests. There are also highlights such as the large dresser on the earthen floor, which showcases a rare example of Kamakura style carvings, and the mud wall on the stairwell.
