‘Soushuku’ machiya house: a traditional Japanese holiday house (vacation rental) with easy access to and from Kyoto Station. Built during the early Showa Period (1926-1989), this machiya house is tucked away within the historical Mibu neighborhood of Kyoto.
Walk along the stone-paved entrance, and find yourself greeted with a spacious living room and impressive view of a tsuboniwa garden. The perfect blend of tradition and modernity, this kyo machiya retains the quintessential Kyoto architecture style known as “unagi no nedoko”. While the exterior may seem compact, enter to find a deceivingly spacious house that stretches long and far.
Retreat to the luxurious bathroom after a day of sightseeing or relax in the spacious living room. On the 1F you’ll find a modern kitchen, Japanese-style room, sofa seating and more. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a double bed. Both are decorated with washi paper art, shoji screens and exposed wooden beams that give a sense of Japanese tranquility in a modern setting.
Rent this entire traditional machiya townhouse (vacation rental) during your next visit to Japan. Reserve together with the neighboring ‘Souhi‘ machiya to stay together with up to 10 guests. Perfect for couples, and groups of families & friends who wish to experience the charm of an authentic Japanese machiya together.
