Cozy Machiya to feel the local lifestyle of Kyoto!

  • Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    This newly renovated machiya townhouse sits quietly in a tiny little side street of a peaceful neighbourhood, offering you to experience the atmosphere from the good old days and the lifestyle of the local residents in Kyoto. You will be welcomed by the traditional building exterior, created from using the characteristic feature of authentic Kyoto townhouse, Ichi-monji roof tiling, and heart-warming fire flickering in the retro-style gas lantern. The interior is made from using Japanese cypress and other natural materials native to Kyoto, and it’s fitted with old-fashioned ceilings and traditional guest room finished with classic clay wall and plastered wall techniques, all combined in creating a space where you could feel the warmth that is friendly to both the people and the environment.... more

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Tokiwa-an and everything was to your liking.
