We have renovated our house by ourselves. If you are interested in traditional Japanese life style we are the one!
Machiya house is made from wood, mud and paper. Using materials from nature. Antique furniture and dishes are set.
We are traditional Machiya house.
There are 3 small rooms each floors. The entrance is connecting to Kitchen and garden. Toilet and bath room locates in the garden.
Here can be not really comfortable but I am sure you can feel real Japanese life.
Please enjoy lying on the tatami mat and feel nature.
This house is also used as art gallery, place for any kinds of workshop or meeting etc. We aim to crate the place where people from various background can communicate each other.
Anywhere except for our bed room.
We are happy to give you information about sightseeing in Kyoto anytime.
If we have free time when you come let's have dinner or cup of coffee! Or if you want to spend time by yourselves of course it's totally fine.
Our toilet is Japanese style (you need to squat down). If you have some trouble with your knee unfortunately we don't suit you.
Also we do not have the space for changing cloths before taking a shower or bath. We usually change our clothes inside the bath room.
If you are not comfortable with our bath we recommend you try to go to the public bath which locates 5min walk from us(cost you 430yen).
Our house is traditional old house so the stirs are steep. Please take great care when you use. We are happy to help you bringing up your luggage.
Please take your shoes off when you come inside the house. We have Tatami mat almost every room so please do not move your suitcase on the Tatami mat.
