Mibu no Machiya 14 PHOTOS
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.
