The space
History and Features:
Kumo Machiya Nijo was built in the 12th year of Taisho Period, a Japanese machiya with decades of history and rich Kyoto Japanese style. It is certified by Kyoto Prefecture as one of rare architecture. During Heian Period, Kumo.Nijo was located at Flower Yard of the Heian Shrine, which was turned into farmland because of the wars. During the Edo Period, many Japanese feudal lords(daimyo in Japanese) came to Nijo-jo castle and built their houses around this place. After that, the land was bought and reformed by Electrical Bureau (renamed as Kyoto Municipal Transportation Bureau later) into a residential area and finally rewarded to national civil servants.
House structure:
Kumo.Nijo is a two floors house with a four-season courtyard behind. On the 1st floor, there is a Japanese tatami living room, a small Japanese bedroom and a newly renovated modern bathroom with bathtub. Air-conditioning and floor heating system are equipped in the living room, the bedroom and the kitchen on the 1st floor. You can enjoy the scenery of the courtyard from all the three rooms. In the western-style room of the 2nd floor, there is a comfortable double bed. You can also enjoy courtyard view from 2nd floor's windows. Drinking a cup of tea, enjoying the scenery and appreciating paintings hung on walls, what an elegant, exquisite and traditional Kyoto life style. Moreover, there is a newly renovated kitchen with refrigerator, washing machine, microwave and kettle on the first floor. Traditional details with modern conveniences.
The exquisite courtyard captures nature within the embrace of the house. Japanese Maple, Japanese agapetes lacei, Nandina,Fraxinuses and many other plants which can show the transition of four-season can be found inside the couryard. . It is a good choice to calm walk through the courtyard with the sound of cascading small waterfalls and gentle breezes through trees.
The bathtub is facing close courtyard. Put some bath salt into the bathtub and take a hot soak in it while enjoying the fantastic courtyard view. After shower, sitting at Engawa(wooden strip of flooring near gardern) with Yukata (Japanese garment )on to bask in the sun or have a couple of tea and doing nothing might be the best way for you to relax.
The chandeliers in the house are antique lamps and lanterns from Taisho Period.
The wood and the paper of the floor lamp on the 2nd floor is hand-made by an old shop named Wadau established over a century ago. A lamp production requires eight days, and engraved with the Genjikou from The Tale of Genji in a pattern on the lampshade.
It is worth mentioning that all beddings, mattresses, pillows and cushions in the house are especially custom-made offered by a old shop named Los Takaoka Ya in Kyoto with more than 400 years history, which are extremely comfortable.
