"Kyomachiya Luck You Bukkoji Higashimachi first opened in September of 2018. At our ryokan, we aspire to preserve the aesthetic feel of the traditional machiya while taking every measure to ensure the comfort of our guests. We hope that we can be a warm and welcoming stop for all travelers staying with us. The exterior is a traditional Kyomachiya. The traditional Kyomachiya building reproduces some of the Kyomachiya’s notable features like the “battari shogi” (foldable benches which are kept retracted except for when in use) and the “inuyarai” (short-arched fences that create a partition between the building and the street while also protecting the walls from mud and dirt). At the same time, the brand-new facilities include modern utilities like individual bathrooms and air conditioning units in each room. The first thing that jumps out upon stepping through the noren and into the lobby is the large, nihonga (Japanese painting) which covers the face of an entire wall. This drawing is the work of an up-coming-artist named Yamaba Haruki, and the cheery painting is a lavish depiction of Japan’s flowers and Kyoto’s various festivals. The Shaolin martial arts dojo next door is planning to have tours and various open-classes available in the near future. Located in the heart of Kyoto. We are conveniently situated nearby many of Kyoto’s notable sightseeing destinations. Shijo Kawaramachi—one of Kyoto’s representative shopping districts—is right by us. The location is also a 6-minute walk from Nishiki market, a 15-minute walk to Gion, and within 3 kilometers of Kiyomizudera Temple. "
Kyomachiya Luck You Bukkoji Higashimachi is modeled after the traditional Kyoto machiya. Inside of the compact, three-story, 9-room building, you’ll find many age-old novelties unique to the Kyomachiya like the “koshi-mado” (lattice windows), “the inuyarai”, and the “tsuridoko” (a lowered wall for displaying flowers and other ornaments). The bonsai at the entrance and the Shaolin dojo next door contribute to the fresh and unique ambiance.
The “noren” we had specially made for us by the custom-order somemonya (dye craft shop) specialist “Shikisa”. The first thing that jumps out upon stepping through the noren and into the lobby is the large, nihonga (Japanese painting) which covers the face of an entire wall. This drawing is the work of an up-coming-artist named Yamaba Haruki, and the cheery painting is a lavish depiction of Japan’s flowers and Kyoto’s various festivals. We put a great deal of care into designing the interior so our guests have an immediate way to interact with Kyoto culture. Air conditioning is also provided in every room to ensure the comfort of your stay.
