Japanese culture is one that is largely influenced by ancient and auspicious motifs that can be found in design, artwork, commodities, and more. Yoshimigura machiya house incorporates these ideas, designs, and motifs of good luck to showcase another prominent side of Japan. This is an elegant machiya house with all of the charm of a traditional Japanese house.
Images and motifs of the matsu tree, bamboo, and plum blossom can be found throughout the house — representing longevity, flexibility, and purity, respectively. From the curtains in the 2nd floor bedroom, to the intricate artwork displayed on the walls.
A small, yet intimate house is deceptively more spacious that what its exterior suggests. A perfect house for smaller groups of family, friends, and couples — this house is the ideal place to begin your exploration of the historical city of Kyoto.

ABOUT THE MACHIYA HOUSE
This machiya is nestled between two houses with pristine white walls, and displays quintessential wooden latticework, and roof tiling that features circular designs similar to manju (Japanese confectionary).

Push aside the sliding door to reveal a modern kitchen that will provide you with all of the necessities during your stay. Countertop IH cookers, cookware, kitchen appliances, dining ware, plates, cups and cutlery will allow you to do light cooking during your stay.
