Nijo Castle North

New and old, side by side. Contemplating eternal history.

From the time of Tokugawa Ieyasu to the reign of the third shogun of the dynasty, Tokugawa Iemitsu,
right up to the restoration of the imperial rule.
Nijo Castle is a World Heritage Site. It has witnessed the rise and fall of the Tokugawa dynasty,
the end of the Edo period, and many other historical transformations in Japan.

Rinn Nijo Castle North is a town house built over 90 years ago; it is located only 200 meters to the north of the castle.
The first floor of the vast town house has been renovated into a stylish, spacious open-plan space.
The washroom and the bathroom facing onto the veranda create an extraordinary open area.
In contrast, the roof frame and columns are exposed on the second floor, allowing the tasteful decor of the alcoves, wooden beams,
old furnishings, and the shades of the earthen walls to present a space that pleases the senses.

Enjoy spending time in your own style in this town house that incorporates features that are both new and old,
while contemplating the eternal flow of history.
