The space

--Nadeshiko Shirakawa--
Traditional Japanese machiya house

The interior of “Nadeshiko Shirakawa” has been designed meticulously – incorporating traditional elements and methods to create a welcoming space for guests. Throughout the house, you will find that wooden frames, rather than modern-day material, encompass the glass windowpanes.

-----LIVING ROOM-----
The “居間” (inner room) features a plethora of differ types of wood, giving the space a relaxing and lived-in feel. From the interior veranda, no matter what the season, you will be able to enjoy the “tsuboniwa garden” by peering through the “Yuki-mi Shoji” doors.

★Floor heating is available in this room★

The “tsuboniwa garden” is a common feature found in traditional Japanese machiya houses. Greenery, typically found in Kyoto gardens, are lit up at night to offer you another sight of this beautiful garden.

A fully functional kitchen is available for you at this house. The kitchen and “inner room” (living room) are both located on the same floor.

★ESSENTIALS: refrigerator, IH cooker, Toaster, Rice Cooker, Microwave, Hot Water Kettle, & cookware. There are enough plates, cups, and cutlery for 4 guests.


2 x twin-sized beds

Kyoto is famous for its “Kyo-Yuzen” dyeing method, a process where craftsmen painstakingly hand-paint Kimono fabric. Providing a one-of-a-kind feature to this house, the wood used during this “Kyo-Yuzen” method has been reused as the floorboards of the bedroom.


2 x Japanese-style futon beds

When you push aside the “Shoji” (paper sliding doors), you are able to enjoy what is reminiscent of the “hibukuro” (high chimney area). Step out onto the veranda during the summer to enjoy the cool breeze, or look out onto the Kyoto scenery.

The apartment is in a very convenient location, close to the metro station, supermarket and laundry. You can reach many interesting places by foot (Gion). The apartment is clean and the service very professional. We were traveling with young kids.
