SPECIAL OFFERS

‘Suo-an’ machiya house: a traditional holiday house (vacation rental) located just a short walk from downtown Shijo-Karasuma area, and Nishiki Market, Kyoto's traditional food market.

Inspired by the era of new hope, Japan's 'Romantic Taisho Era’ (1912~1926). It was a time when Japan began to be exposed to the West, ushering a shift in design that balanced traditional Japanese style and vibrant Western culture. This machiya house is the perfect balance of traditional Japanese style and vibrant Western culture, with its dark wooden accents and crimson red walls. Slide open the front door to reveal a spacious Japanese-style room, Japanese garden, kitchen, and luxurious bathroom. Partition the Japanese room with the fusuma sliding doors to create a separate bedroom.

Upstairs, you'll find a second Japanese-room in addition to a Western-style bedroom. The Japanese room showcases koshi lattice windows running along one side of the room, while the Western-style bedroom features a vibrant washi light fixture. This renovated Kyoto machiya house also includes modern facilities such as WiFi, IH stovetop, washing machine, and more.
