Tou-In-Gen-Ei ( Guest house in Kyoto )7 枚の写真 Machiya guesthouse in Kyoto. This is tiny single-storied townhouse ( it was very leaned ). So we covered walls with used wooden doors and planed inner small stone garden ( Tsuboniwa ) for getting the spacious view. There is built-in LED tape light in the wall doors. They light the room dimly. On the other hand above the stone garden, there is a large skylight window. White gravels on the floor of the stone garden refracts the sunbeam into the room. These lightings make an impressive contrast in the room. The concept of the house came from "陰翳礼讃" by 谷崎潤一郎.
Mibu no Machiya14 枚の写真 Old town house "Machiya" renovation. This rustic soil walls had been covered with cheap plywood panels. Once people used to prefer to modernize traditional Machiya with new materials. So there are many modernized Machiya yet in Kyoto. Fortunately, the structure of this Machiya was stable and not so leaning. We succeeded to restore to the old style with used wooden doors. On the other hand bathroom, toilet and kitchen were renovated with modern fixtures.
