Kyomachiya House Inn (Guest House)
Kyo no Ondokoro KAMANZA-NIJO
"Kyo no Ondokoro" was started by the Wacoal Corporation as part of a CSV project, to preserve Kyoto's traditional landscape and builds a cooperative community by renovating Kyomachiya houses into modern vacation cottages while maintaining their traditional architectural appearance and internal structure.
Kyo no Ondokoro KAMANZA-NIJO is a 150-years old Kyomachiya House, near Nijo Castle, and is run by Architect Yoshifumi Nakamura and Designer/Founder of minä perhonen Akira Minagawa. It has been renovated to create a bright and modern residence, while retaining the old-world charm of Kyoto's traditional townhouse. There is a cozy kitchen and dining room, a lovely tooriniwa atrium, a hinoki cypress-scented bathroom, and a garden library with a view of a 100-year-old tree. Takaokaya's kyoto zabutons adorn the lounge area for guests to relax and soak up the history and culture of this charming house.
