Age of construction before renovation: approximately 101 years

This Machiya, traditional style wooden town house is located facing the Omiya Street, which runs North to South through the city of Kyoto. In 1912 , the municipal electric railway commenced operation and the street grew into one of the main areas of the city. The age of the building is unknown, but documents show that the Machiya was already existing in 1915, making it at least 101 years old.
The previous owner had been living here for 60 years after their parents claimed the building when the owner was young. They ran a shoe store at the same place for the first decade, all while living here. After closing down the shoe store, they remodeled the space (where the current Doma, dart floor on entrance space is placed) and used it as one of the rooms for the family to use. Later, the space was leased out. In December of 2016, the building was transformed into Machiya Ryokan “Kuraya”.
