'Bonbori' Lights - Machiya House Features

There is something in this Japanese house inspired by “bonbori”. What do you think a “bonbori” refers to?


“Bonbori” are round, old-fashioned light stands covered with white Japanese paper or cloth. The name “Bonbori” comes from the fact that the candle or light appears “honnori”(softly).


‘Hanatoki’ Machiya Holiday House is located just a short walk from the Gion neighborhood. You can stay here with up to 8 guests.
