     Aoi Shinmachi

    Staying at a machiya with the atmosphere of a gallery

    Aoi Shinmachi was built by reforming a two story machiya Kyoto-style house.  The building includes a sake brewery in the garden. The basic structure of Machiya was kept and the second floor level was removed to create a space for a stairwell to allow a living room with a high ceiling.  The Japanese room has an atmosphere like a gallery as curios and antiques item are beautifully arranged throughout.  They offer guests some options. If you wish to have meals, you can order a delivery from a suggested food catering service. The recommended breakfast is “Morning porridge set” from “Suien”. The owner Mr. Takeo Iwasaki used to work for “Wakuden” and independently opened his restaurant in October in 2012. The set includes a popular baked lotus root for sweets. If you wish to have a western style breakfast, you can order a delivery of fresh bread from “ORENO PAN” produced by “Gion Okumura”.
