Our Kyoto Machiya Houses
Your home away from home
The look and feel of a traditional Kyoto Machiya with all the modern comfort
All these houses are designed and conceived to be “Your home away from home”. You rent the whole house, not just a room, and are free to come and go as you please. All these houses have recently been entirely renovated (or rebuilt in some cases), respecting the look and feel of the “Kyomachi”, the traditional wooden townhouses of Kyoto. But these houses have all been featured with proper insulation and a mixture of traditional and modern material. We added floor heaters and radiators for the cold winter months, air conditioning in every room for the hot summer months. You’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, table with chairs, seating areas, western bedrooms with comfortable beds, but also tatami mat rooms with futons, wooden bathrooms with bathtubs and/or showers, low tables with cushions. All these houses are decorated with old and traditional items such as a Samurai armor, beautiful wedding kimono, Nô mask, paintings, old folding screens, ancient calligraphy panels, traditional dolls, and much, much more, for a more refined atmosphere.
For the convenience of the travelers, all the houses are equipped with All-In-One Automatic washer/dryer, unlimited high-speed internet access (optical fiber),large screen flat HDTV with unlimited Netflix movies and series (except for Gojo Machiya), and more.
Come and experience the traditional living style of the people of Kyoto, in a modern and luxurious manner!
