A modern take on the traditional Japanese machiya house. Immerse yourself in historical Kyoto, and local life by renting an entire machiya house for yourselves.
"Aoshida” machiya house was designed to embody not only the traditional, but the modern. Japan, Kyoto in particular, is known for its narrow streets and compact houses -- but this machiya cleverly utilizes these features to create an airy space.
The main feature of "Aoshida" is its abundance of natural light -- large windows decorate each room of the house, opening up the space to present a warm & inviting atmosphere.
