    Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, on a small cobble stone lane in the heart of the city, you will find your home away from home. This beautifully restored Machiya retains its old world charm and provides insight into the old way of life in Japan.

There are good restaurants nearby- amazing dim sum nearby, a supermarket. Having the bikes gave us so much freedom to explore further afield...
