A little more authentic way of life in Kyoto;
Discover the real Japan at Rinn
Rinn Tsukinuke stands in a quiet alley near the Nishi Honganji Temple which is a world heritage.
Tsukinuke is one of funny town names in Kyoto.
Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who is a preeminent daimyō and politician of the Sengoku period,
named the town “Tsukinuke” after the street from Kamigyo (up) to Shimogyo (down).
Kmigyo area was the place where rich people gathered and built splendid mansions.
On the other hand, Shimogyo area was for warrior, farmer, craftsmen and merchants.
Rinn Tsukinuke expresses the history of that time.
On the 1st floor, we put craftsmen tools such as a hammer and a plane on display.
Using purple color as an accent, we created the 2nd floor from images of prestigious buildings.
Please enjoy the two different atmosphere at Rinn Tsukunuke.
