About the owner: I am very happy to announce that other two machiya of Kyo Machiya Miyabi - (Kiyomizu area 3 properties: Bairin-an, Shofu-an, Momiji-an) are opened in Sanjo-Kamanza near Nijo Castle and central position, an almost 100 years old Kyoto townhouse: KAMIZA-AN on the upper level, and SHIMOZA-AN on the lower level of the house. I really like Kyoto and to be owner of Machiya,Kyoto traditional townhouse, give me the chance to share with guests from all the world the beauty of this city ' s culture. I think if you stay in a traditional house the approach to a different culture is more real and interesting, and the experience is deeper. Also making the machiya a place where to stay means to preserve the townhouse and its traditional craft sides: the tatami, the sliding doors, the wood parts, etc. and to be spread to others to keep somehow the traditions alive.
Why the Owner Chose Nakagyo-ku (Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan):
I liked the typical 'eel' shape as called in Kyoto (the front side is not so wide and the house extends in length). I thought it could be so nice to preserve this townhouse and make our guests even for few days to live as Kyoto people lived for centuries with traditions plus a more today comfort in the daily house use.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The benefits of this townhouse is keeping the traditional sides and add modern touch to satisfy our international guests needs, and also is the location: in central Kyoto but in a quiet street. At five minutes walking distance there is Nijo Castle, where the Shogun lived, old more than 400 hundreds years. Many other places to visit are at a walking distance, like Rokkakudo Temple called the navel of Kyoto connected with the famous ikebana school Ikenobo, the Imperial Park, or colourfull Nishiki food market. Bus stops are very close as banks, post office, museums, galleries, every kind of restaurants, cafes, bars...and more and more!
