Gojo Mibugawa East

A house stands in historical Shimabara area

Two townhouses stand next to each other in the cityscape reflecting the daily life in Kyoto.
One of them is Rinn Gojo Mibugawa East.
In the large guest room behind its small entrance, the sunlight pours through the stairwell, creating a gentle and warm space.
As you open the sliding windows, the leaves of maple trees cast beautiful shadows in the courtyard typical of a townhouse in Kyoto.
The Shimabara area is a historic place that flourished as a geisha district.
Historical buildings used by the Shinsengumi, such as the registered tangible cultural property Shimabara Gate, Sumiya
—the only surviving architecture in the style of high-class Edo-period pleasure house, and Wachigaiya
—a geisha house currently still operating, stand in the area.
As you visit the historic areas quietly blending into the daily life in Kyoto, you will discover something new.
