From Cosy Homes to Rambling Mansions Our machiya can provide accommodation for one guest or up to groups of 14, depending on the house.
Furnishing & Amenities We have preserved the old beauty of each house, but added modern comforts such as radiant in-floor heating, Broadband wireless internet access, air-conditioning, and state-of-the art bathroom fixtures.
