Just steps away from the renowned Kiyomizudera Temple, discover a beautifully preserved Kyoto machiya.
Inspired by the tea ceremony tradition, “Rikyu-an” features elements of tea ceremony rooms. Circular windows, delicate tea ceremony utensils, ‘tatami’ straw mat floors are found throughout the house.
Gather with your guests in the open plan first floor. The combined kitchen and dining area is the perfect place to relax and take in the view of the inner garden. The machiya’s architecture is accented with Japanese cedar, a light-colored wood, which lends a soft and calming atmosphere to the space.
