In the downtown area of Gojo, this historic Machiya is undergoing renovation to preserve its unique cultural significance. The old building is being carefully taken apart by our skilled artisans, who will save materials like aged timber and shoji screens. The goal of the renovation is to honour the past while incorporating modern comforts. Plans include adding advanced heating, cooling, and insulation systems. This project represents respect for Kyoto’s history while meeting the practical needs of today, creating a renovated Machiya that will be a cultural landmark in the city centre.
