Rinn Premium Machiya Townhouse Kyoto GojoⅠKoki

Experience the a Heritage of Craft and Brilliance in Two Inns

In the Heian period, there was temple known as the Kanabutsu-dera, meaning
“Temple of the Golden Buddha,” because a golden statue of the Buddha was enshrined there,
and this is how Nakakanabutsu-cho is said to have got its name.
In this area, close to Nishi Hoganji Temple,
two machiya (traditional townhouse) inns emerged close together in the place
where many craftsmen of Buddhist altar fittings are said to have lived.
In the two inns, to the east and to the west, the theme of “gold,” used in temple architecture and Buddhist sculptures 
since ancient times as a symbol of “eternity” and “permanence,” is expressed in decorative materials
that adorn the walls and the bed throws.
The brilliance and beauty of this gold is brought out by these simple Kyoto machiya townhouses
that are steeped in history.
Experience the tradition hidden deep in the brilliance and technique of these machiya townhouses,
and feel the charm that has permeated the bare beams and rustic columns over many years.
