The perfect machiya townhouse for those looking for convenient access to Kyoto’s most popular districts (Kawaramachi & Gion), as well as peace and quiet during their vacation.
Just take a small journey into a small backstreet to find this Kyoto machiya with its lattice windows and traditional entranceway curtain.

This machiya's name "Seijian" is derived from the term "seiji" or the blue-green pattern found in many Japanese pottery. With this in mind, the wallpaper, which decorates the living room walls, represents this same hue through design. The "yukimishouji," or sliding paper doors, can be pushed upwards to allow you to enjoy the interior garden with every season. Enjoy the interplay of light as it reflects throughout the house to truly appreciate the traditional architecture of the machiya house.

Local Information

Local Information

"Seiji-an" evokes a sense of adventure, while embodying an air of refinement.
Gion, Kyoto. One of the beautifully preserved historical area of Kyoto city -- with traditional houses and shops lining the streets, paper lanterns lighting up the night, and home to wonderful restaurants and sightseeing attractions. Although this machiya can be found in one of the most popular districts of Kyoto, you'll be transported a world away during your stay in this machiya house.

Take an early morning stroll along the Kamogawa River, a short 5 minute walk away. In the spring, the river will be lined with the beautiful sight of pink cherry blossom trees, while summer offers cool shade of the lush green trees.

At night you can relax and enjoy Gion’s nighttime scene, as paper lanterns light up the stone-cobbled streets -- offering you a completely different side of this beautiful city. The famous Minamiza Kabuki Theatre is around the corner, while the picturesque & historical street of "Hanamikoji" is a 1 minute walk away. Forget about time as you take in the atmosphere, and enjoy every moment of your Kyoto trip.
