This Machiya, traditional style wooden town house is conveniently located only ten minutes away from JR Kyoto Station on foot and seven minutes from Subway Karasuma Line’s Gojyo Station. It was vacant for about 20 years, but was given new life using traditional wooden frame construction method, and natural mud from locations close to Kyoto to use on the mud walls. After the renovation, the Machiya opened up as Machiya Ryokan “Kuraya” in March of 2017. This modern-designed but traditional Kyoto Machiya style Ryokan, is the perfect place to stay while visiting Kyoto.
