This home, built during the Taisho period nearly 100 years ago, is a Kyoto-style machiya house available for rent, located 7 minutes from the intersection of Shijo-Karasuma, in the center of the ancient imperial capital.
Located down a small, private street, the house is cozy and quiet while still being extremely well-located, just a minute away from restaurants and transportation.
