Machiya Residence Inn Anzu-an

4.2 / 5

The design of the Kyoto machiya is steeped in tradition - from the white lattice windows to the clay tiled roofs and protruding wooden lattice windows.Considered to be an integral and valuable part of the Kyoto landscape, the number of Kyoto machiya is disappearing. This is an opportunity to experience firsthand the historic beauty and comfort of a machiya.Anzu-an machiya house sits quietly on a small street. This bright and cozy machiya will welcome you into a house fitted with dark mahogany wood, traditional tatami mats, and calming white walls.Each room of this house has been meticulously designed with incredible detail, and unique features - from the traditional tearoom inspired entrance way, to the blue - green stones featured in the bathroom. When wet, these stones transform into a glossy blue color.

You will find a fully functional kitchen in the house. Please use this space as if it were you own home, and feel free to cook meals during your stay. Inside the classic cupboard are traditional plates and utensils, including Japanese teacups, an iron teapot, and rice bowls.


The bathroom tiles are made from “Towadaishi,” which are blue-white and blue-green hued stones that can only be mined from a small region of Aichi Prefecture. (North of Kyoto) The stone also contains minus ions, which are said to have a relaxing effect.

A modern bathroom, this property includes 1 toilet, washroom, and shower/bathtub.


The design of this space took influence from the traditional Japanese tearoom – details including a semicircular lampshade on the ceiling, and a paper partition serve to recreate this traditional room. Beautiful as much as it is functional, the tearoom found in Japanese homes served as a place to welcome company.

From the “degoshi,” or protruding lattice windows, you can enjoy the interplay of shadow and light over the Kyoto scenery as the sun rises and sets.
