‘Shakudo-an’ machiya house: a traditional Kyoto holiday house (vacation rental) located a short walk from the Higashiyama area, where Kyoto's famous Kiyomizu temple, Sannenzaka area, Sanjyusangendo Temple and more lie.
A traditional machiya that embraces the traditional Japanese philosophy of 'wabi-sabi' - the appreciation of the beauty in impermanence and imperfection. Surround yourself in the warmth of “Shakudo-an”, a machiya house that balances rich designs with the warm bronze and rust tones.
Enter the machiya into a spacious kitchen, reminiscent of a traditional stone hearth kitchen that has been updated with modern appliances and facilities. Gather with guests in the tatami lined living room to admire one of 2 inner gardens, and relax in the upstairs bedrooms that are adorned with hidden tea ceremony rooms, ‘tokonoma’ art alcove, 'tatami' mats and more.
Reserve this entire traditional machiya holiday house. It’s perfect for couples, and groups of families & friends who wish to experience the charm of an authentic machiya together.
