In the last few decades, the traditional cityscape and Kyo-Machiya (traditional Kyoto house) have been disappearing at an alarming rate. Meanwhile, rural villages throughout the country suffer from depopulation and a lack of sustainable means of livelihood.
The aim of this project is to acquire old Kyo-Machiya (traditional Kyoto house), restore them beautifully, and offer them as an accommodation to visitors. The Kyoto Kyo-Machiya Stay Arts Project maintains traditional Kyoto architecture and also gives the visitors a chance to experience Kyoto in a unique and unforgettable way.
During this project's period, Iori Co.'s Kyo-Machiya will change to "ARTS MACHIYA".
We will exhibit the works of art into Kyo-Machiya, guests can see and feel the works of art and Kyo-Machiya at the same time.
We would like guests see and/or stay in our Special "ARTS-MACHIYA"
