‘Rikyu-an’ machiya house: a traditional holiday house (vacation rental) nestled within the historical Higashiyama neighborhood. This machiya townhouse is just a short walk from Kiyomizu Temple, the stone-paved streets of Ninenzaka & Sannenzaka, and the oldest standing pagoda in Kyoto, Yasaka-no-to Pagoda.

Renovated using plenty of Japanese cedar (杉板; sugiita), this traditional kyomachiya house features elegant "ichimonji-kawara" roof style, and circular windows inspired by tea ceremony rooms. Enter into this machiya townhouse to be greeted by soft light, rich woodwork details, and a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The entrance features a tranquil study, which is the perfect place to enjoy a book, or ready for the day. Move further into this machiya to find a spacious tatami-lined Japanese room, modern kitchen, and 'tsuboniwa' garden. On the 2F is Japanese-style and relaxing Western-style bedroom, with tea room-inspired doorways and delicate 'washi' paper windows. Retreat to a private and intimate space during your time in Kyoto.
