‘Sumitsugu’ machiya house: a stunning traditional holiday house (vacation rental) nestled in-between the Kamogawa River, and the historical Higashiyama Area. This machiya house is hidden within one of Kyoto's many hidden lanes. From the exterior, you may not imagine a spacious house, but slide open the entrance door to reveal an expansive and inviting house.

"Sumitsugu" machiya house derives its name from 「墨継ぎ」(sumitsugi), the act of refilling a calligraphy brush with new sumi-ink. Playing upon the characters of 「墨継ぎ」is「住み継ぎ」- which can also be read as sumitsugi - and refers to the act of continuing the way of life.

The 1F features a traditional Japanese-style room and modern living room with sofa seating - both with a relaxing view of a tsuboniwa Japanese garden. You'll also find a fully renovated kitchen, and luxurious bathroom that also offers a view of the garden.

Upstairs are 2 bedrooms (one Western-style, one Japanese-style), in addition to a shower room and toilet for your convenience. Perfect for larger groups of family and friends, this renovated Kyoto machiya house also includes modern facilities such as floor heating, WiFi, IH stovetop, washing machine, and more.
