Maker House: a Japanese house made for you

The Maker House was restored in 2018. It is a townhouse (machiya) located in the Nishijin area, a district known for its textile industry and the kimono craftsmanship. Close to a commercial street (Kitano shotengai) and small retail shops, it is named after its owner passion for making things. The owner used a local carpenter for the restoration of the house and made all wooden furniture by himself -- such as the beds, tables and the new kitchen, but also other details such as the wooden flooring and the crafted Japanese washi wallpaper.
The Maker House is built on 2 floors, it is ideal for a family or a group of friends. The first floor is the living area, and the second floor has 3 bedrooms and a bathroom (with a washer). The house can fit up to 4 people on beds, and has one extra futon for 1 or 2 other guests.
The district, Nishijin and Kitano shotengai, has a deep local history, as it was one of the main commercial and leisure areas in the past. Senbon and Nakadachiuri streets have many retail shops and supermarkets. It is also at 10 minutes walk from Kyoto oldest Geisha district, Kamishichiken and Kitano tenmangu shrine and its famous antique flea market (25th of each month). From here you can also easily access the North Western touristic spots, the Daitokuji Zen monastery, the Golden pavilion, the Ryoanji, and Arashiyama can be accessed by train (Randen) from near-by Kitano Hakubaicho.
The Maker House is a 80 years-old property, and we have decided to keep its authenticity, living untouched some earthen floors, typical windows, and the wooden pillars and beams. You will also appreciate the comfort of its soft furniture and western beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with a state-of-the-art gas stove and even a dishwasher.
It is located between Ritsumeikan and Doshisha universities, not far from Kyoto University too.
