Welcome to Kyomachiya no Yado 794inn Kiyomizu-Gojo
Today there are 47,000 houses in the city that are called 'Machiya' in Kyoto city.
The history is old, and the word Machiya (shop) has already appeared in the literature at the time of construction of Heiankyo in 794 AD.
There is no other example of a country where the traditional houses that still exist still beyond the history of 1000 years.
History and culture overlapped in the traditional architectural style and still remains in the town of Kyoto.
I would like you to actually see and touch and feel Kyoto. And experience the things that you can’t do it on the internet.
”Why we call it 794inn”
It may be easy to notice, 794 is taken from the year 794 when Kyoto became the capital city.
And two things that the owner has noticed while traveling around the world.
“There’re quite a lot of people in the world that don’t speak English very well like Japanese people…”
“Numbers are used all over the world, and even people who don’t speak English or Japanese can write them down”
From this experience, when someone is lost it’s much more easier to ask someone for the place and find this place if we used numbers for our name. Numbers are worldwide and everyone knows.
“A Journey like living in Kyoto at a private Kyomachiya”
We lend a single house limited to one group per night.
Because there’s no reception, the staff won’t stay at the inn. You’ll meet the staff only on check-in.
That’s the reason you can stay at this inn as if you’re living in this house.
Subway and train are also within 5 minutes walking distance. The nearest bus stop is also 3 minutes on foot.
Convenient for sightseeing and business. Also it’s located very close to the city center for dining and places to enjoy yourself. Although it’s very close to the city center 794 inn Shimizu Gojo stands in a quiet residential area, so you can rest peacefully day and night.
“Back to when it was like 100 years ago”
The 794 inn Kiyomizu Gojo is a house that is over 100 years old.
One hundred years ago it was a liquor store of a merchant.
People who have lived in this house for generations along with the history of 100 years you can see traces of frequent remodeling and renovation that was done.
Also this house, was used as a residence until 2015. After officially becoming Kyomachiya 's hotel 794 inn Shimizu Gojo in 2016, we’ll improve our quality of comfort of the stay and remove the inconvenience as possible.
Currently, we are promoting exterior decor and interior renovation to gradually return to where we can return to what it should be like 100 years ago.
So, depending on the timing of your stay there may be inconvenience caused by construction and others.
When you come back to Kyoto, and every time you return to 794 inn, I hope you can feel the atmosphere and the deep history of 100 years in Kyoto.
