'Daibei-zukuri' Walls – Machiya House Features
However, there are machiya homes that have no lattice windows and doors – but “daibei-zukuri” walls instead! Daibei-zukuri walls faced streets directly and created enough space for a “senzai” front garden.
This type of machiya house was built exclusively for wealthy merchants and doctors, and was considered a symbol of wealth as it required more land and space than a typical machiya. ‘Yoitsubaki’ Machiya House boasts 2 gardens, which you can enjoy during your stay in Kyoto City.
Stay in a traditional Japanese townhouse (machiya) during your next visit to Kyoto, Japan.
