Shouki-sama, displayed above the edge of the roof, is a deity believed to protect the home.
"Momohana-an" features a traditional Japanese interior with tatami (woven-straw) floors and shoji paper sliding screens. Although it is located near one of the busiest shopping districts in Kyoto, this machiya is tucked away from all of the hustle and bustle of the city to provide you with a moment of tranquility during your time in this historical city. Like many traditional machiya, "Momohana-an"served not only as a living space, but also as a store. After entering through the lattice door in the entranceway, you see the 'Mise-no-ma' space on your right.
The 'Mise-no-ma' is a traditional part of a Kyo-machiya floor plan, used as a space to conduct business with guests. There are also highlights such as the large dresser on the earthen floor, which showcases a rare example of Kamakura style carvings, and the mud wall on the stairwell.

Momohana-an is a unique combination of a one-story bungalow and two-story house. The white stucco walls and trellis wall allows you to truly feel the charm of the house.
This machiya house is located between "Shijo" street & "Kawaramachi" street to provide you with easy access to the main shopping & dining district, in addition to the most popular sight seeing attractions. A 10 minute walk East will lead you towards the popular Gion area, while 1 subway stop North will bring you to the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
We also recommend renting a bicycle from a local rental shop to explore the city. A 7 minute bicycle ride can take you to Kenninji Temple, while a 15 minute bicycle ride will lead you towards Nijo Castle.
Numerous local shops, cafes, and restaurants surround “Momohana-an”. You can choose to have a taste of Kyoto, stop by a family-friendly restaurant, or enjoy a Western-style meal in any number of these local restaurants.
Walk a little north of Momohana-an to visit Nishiki Market -- an outdoor market that is popular amongst locals and visitors alike. Pick up some fresh produce, local ingredients, or homemade delicacies & enjoy a meal as you sit in front of the tranquil "tsuboniwa" garden of Momohana-an.

ABOUT THE MACHIYA HOUSE

Next to the kitchen is the dining space. Even in the past, family members used this space besides the kitchen, referred to as the “Naka-no-ma,” to gather together for a meal.

Often called “Okudo-san” in the past, due to the furnace stove, there is a self-contained kitchen for you to cook your own meals.
