Foods


The “okudosan” (a charcoal or wood fueled stove) has been restored with red bricks, while polished artificial marble line the sink to evoke images of what this machiya house had looked like in the past. The high ceiling (hibukuro) acted as a chimney, and together with the “okudosan” was considered a sacred area of the house. Now, this hibukuro serves as a skylight to provide plenty of natural light throughout the house.

Baths


In the back is a fully equipped bathroom with a sink, toilet, washer, dryer, and bathtub that overlooks the quaint tsuboniwa garden.

Facilities

As you approach the entrance, you will be greeted by an impressive lattice bay window that has been accentuated by the “irimoya” roof. A traditional roof where all 4 sides slope down, and a gable is included in the center — this style is often seen used on many temples & shrines.
