It is comfortable in all seasons and the natural cedar and cypress timbers provide a warmth and comfort that fits well with the mountain environment.

About Me
Long term anthropologist of Japan and Japan resident working in Kyoto. Interested in architecture and timber frame Japanese homes--like the one I have had built and am offering here! Love the mountain environment here just above the city of Kyoto for walking trails and general access to nature.
