‘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.
