Welcome to Kyoto!
We “Windows to Japan”, a specialist tour agency who opens authentic, soul stirring windows to Japan for independent travelers. From planning to operate and guiding tours in Japan to hosting guests at our Machiyas, we take great pleasure in introducing visitors to the real Japan.
For those of you who are interested in an authentic taste of Japanese culture and its traditions, we invite you to stay in one of our Machiyas.
Machiya are wooden townhouses developed in Kyoto throughout Japan’s history.
They are hidden gems waiting to be explored and experienced. Staying at a Machiya provides an opportunity to connect in a subtle yet very vivid way to the deep traditions of Kyoto; a city that can be described as an island of tradition in the swirling whirlpool of ongoing change and evolution.
All our Machiya are located in the heart of the city but off a quiet side street which ensuring a quiet relaxing surrounding, yet allowing immediate access to major Kyoto’s historical district.
Here is the list of our Machiyas. Some of them are really close to each other suitable for large groups.
You can also visit us on and Instagram!
As our guests, you can benefit not only from the great setting of our Machiya, but also from your hosts’ extensive knowledge and experience of tourism and travel in Japan.
We are looking forward to hosting you!
