This machiya expresses the light of new hope and the evanescence found during Japan's 'Romantic Taisho Era' (1912 to 1926).

A time when Japan had recently been exposed to a slightly more western lifestyle, this era ushered in the perfect balance between the traditional Japanese style combined with the vibrant and international scene of the Meiji Period. "Suo-an" machiya house, accentuated with shades of crimson, is a townhouse that reflects the influence that modern design had on the traditional machiya house. A large wooden beam stretches across the ceiling -- portraying the charm of the traditional architecture. Tatami-mat lined rooms that have been designed with the Japanese tea ceremony room in mind. Enjoy an atmosphere that can only be experienced at Suo-an machiya house.

Local Information

Local Information

The natural light that pours in from the windows and lamps accentuate each intricate detail found throughout the house, and evoke an atmosphere of a centuries-old Japan.
The "Shijo" area of Kyoto is know to be the popular shopping and dining district. You'll find plenty of dining options to choose from -- all within walking distance.

We recommend stopping by "Nishiki Market," a lively shopping arcade with shops that sell fresh seafood & poultry, Kyoto-grown produce, hand-made side dishes, "tsukemono," (pickled vegetables), and more. Just north of Suo-an, pick up some of the delicious things that Nishiki Market has to offer and utilize the kitchen found at your machiya house.

Grab a One-day Bus Pass, to explore the entire Higashiyama area (located east of Suo-an). You'll be able to see the wonders of Kiyomizu Temple, the cherry-blossom lined Philosopher's Path during the spring, the cool gardens of Kenninji Temple, and more. Take the Kyoto City Subway West to Nijo Castle -- a castle with an interesting history and background regarding its former resident and architecture.
