ABOUT THE MACHIYA HOUSE
Walk down a narrow alleyway tucked away within a bustling neighborhood to find a machiya house with dark wooden lattice windows and doors, and contrasting white walls.
The large glass window in the living room showcases the “tsuboniwa” (inner garden). Enjoy the traditional Japanese greenery, which allows you to appreciate all four seasons no matter what time of year you visit Kyoto.
During your stay at “Kakishibu-an,”you will have access to everything necessary to fully immerse yourself in the Kyoto life. Behind the Shoji doors (paper sliding doors), you will find a fully functional kitchen, along with basic appliances, cookware, and enough dishes and cutlery for 5 guests.
From the entrance way, step into the 1st floor “washitsu” (Japanese room) that is lined with tatami flooring typically found in Japanese houses. With sunlight filtering through the latticed windows, and a large window that opens up into the machiya’s “tsuboniwa,” this room will provide you with a comfortable place to make yourself at home in.
A smaller Japanese-style loft area sits adjacent to the western style room on the 2nd floor. You can utilize this open space as a place to relax before or after a day of exploring Kyoto city.
The western-style bedroom on the 2nd floor reveals an open ceiling, allowing for you to appreciate the craftsmanship of the “kokerabuki” shingled roof. The large wooden beams that stretch across the ceiling, while dramatic, also provide a sense of warmth to the room.
After a day of exploration, unwind in the bathroom that has been lined with “hinoki” wood. This Japanese cypress is a beautiful, light-brown cedar that gives off a relaxing aroma, and also holds a sacred place within Japanese history. It can only be found in areas of Japan where the water and air are “pure,” and has been the choice of wood by countless emperors for thousands of years.
The 2nd floor also boasts a separate washroom where you will be able to prepare for a day of sightseeing in a relaxed space. The doors that open up to this washroom feature “Tosa-Washi,” an exquisitely hand-made Japanese washi paper produced by skilled craftsmen from Kochi, Japan.
