Senbondori Street and Marutamachi Street’s crossing, where Kuraya Jyurakudai is located, is where it is said to be that Ancient Kyoto’s Daigokuden, an office building for Japanese Emperor was placed. A monument in memory of this building was built and can still be seen at Uchino Children’s Park, located just north of Kuraya Jurakudai.
This Machiya, traditional style wooden town house was built in 1909, and its second floor’s soil walls are made up of “Takekomai (base of the soil walls made up of bamboos)”, “Arakabe (rough coat)” and “Nakanurikabe (middle coat)”. The soil walls intentionally designed to present its structure, to show how traditional soil walls are made. Please enjoy your stay at this modern yet traditional Machiya.
