This townhouse expresses the light of new hope and its evanescence during the era known as the 'Romantic Taisho Era' in Japan(1912 - 1926). Take a step inside and you will be immediately freed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and will be exposed to the world of the good old Taisho Romance.
You will enjoy the taste of modern Wa-style Unique with rooms filled with various styles such as the guest room designed in vermilion-based colour scheme that shows different character according to the interior lighting and natural light, bedroom with high ceiling built using quaint, old cross beams, and tatami floored-room with raised platforms inspired by old tea ceremony rooms. Up to 6 people can stay at one time. Please enjoy and experience the old lifestyle of Kyoto in this traditional Machiya-style accommodation with all the modern facilities.
The first floor-
The natural light that pours in from the windows and lamps accentuate the crimson hues of the room(s). It evokes feelings of 100 years ago, during the Taisho Era when new and unconventional ideas were being encouraged.
The second floor-
Traditional style beams line the bedroom’s high ceilings and tatami, or straw floor mats, showing how a modern open space can integrate time-honored architectural elements.
The bathroom/ washroom-
The glass paned bathroom is lined with black granite and cypress, allowing guests to relax in luxury.
Moss, fern and other plants that make up a Japanese garden have been arranged with meticulous care to provide a tranquil environment.
The exterior is preserved in its original state. At night, the moon and street lights stream through the lattice openings.
