Shimogyo Ward, ,
For Sale


This is a rare rare opportunity to acquire a good-sized genuine Machiya in the heart of Gojo, downtown Kyoto and a remarkably low price. Just a block away from Gojo-dori and all its myriad of shops and restaurants, and less than a 7-minute walk from the Gojo train station, the house is tucked away in a quiet but sunny alleyway. Less than five minutes walk from two of Kyoto’s most famous temples, the Higashi Hongan-ji and Nishi Hongan-ji.

The house itself is a genuine Heritage Machiya and has beautiful exposed timber beams and columns, and a larger-than-average ornamental garden. The renovation team at Heritage Homes stands ready to transform this unpolished gem into a beautiful jewel!
