This traditional Japanese house showcases a quintessential feature of machiya - the ‘engawa’ veranda.

Slide open the entrance door and walk through the stone-paved approach. You’ll find yourself greeted with a spacious living room with a grand view of the tsuboniwa garden. One of the main features of this machiya is the luxurious bathroom, which allows you to take in the entire view of the tsuboniwa garden and enjoy the feeling of an open-air bath.
On the 1F is a kitchenette, fitted with modern appliances and cookware, perfect to make light meals. Stretch out in the Japanese-style room, which can also convert into an additional bedroom. Upstairs, you’ll find 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed, which are designed with washi paper art, shoji screens, and exposed wooden beams to give the rooms a modern yet relaxed Japanese feel. The best of both tradition and modernity, spend a luxurious time in this machiya house during your stay in Kyoto.
