Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

The house is big and nice with a small internal garden, traditional Japanese features and interesting calligraphy. Western-style rooms are amusing and not interesting. The house is located on a small street connection to Oike-dori and we have found it while walking to a tea house near by. It was interesting to see the house especially because it is not really a museum but a trade house and a private residence. On the other side, looking at the grim face of the owner, one might feel a little unwelcome unless her/his interests include massive purchase of fabrics displayed all over the place.

This was by far one of the best residences/offices that we toured in Japan. It started as a medical clinic in 1920, but evolved to an office and later to a residence. The building has a number of rooms that display the various uses.There is a tearoom, a guest room, a Buddha room and altar, and rooms with exhibits of both men and women kimonos. The entire house is a wonderful museum covering a range of time frames. It ia open from 10am-5pm and an appointment is required. Admission is 500 yen.
