Kyomachiya Luck You Horikawa Gojo was recently reopened after renovations. The facility now has a newly added annex.

Thank you for checking out our home page. Kyomachiya Luck You Horikawa Gojo was recently reopened on April 17, 2020 after completing renovations, and we commemorated the grand opening of the newly built bettei (annex).

We have also arranged a Japanese garden with trees and plants that reflect the seasons with the hopes that your stay at our Kyomachiya is as memorable as can be.

Our guests staying in the main building will also have open access to the annex garden, so we hope that you stop by to visit it during your stay.

There are five new rooms—“Hana”, “Tori”, “Kaze”, “Tsuki”, and “Shiki”—in the annex. Every room is rife with cultural accents, each with a history and impression that sets the Kyomachiya apart.

We hope you that have a wonderful time during your stay with us at the newly renovated Kyomachiya Horikawa Gojo.

Background on the Design of the Bettei (Annex)

The building is rife with cultural accents, each with a history and impression that sets the Kyomachiya apart from anything you’ve seen. Here, we’ll be introducing you to some of details of the annex design.

1. The Garden

A new garden has been built in the annex lobby. Pine trees, maple, and stone lanterns can be found in a traditional Japanese garden arrangement that accentuates the changing seasons.

2. Fukinuke (Clearing)

While the open space left above the kitchen is called the “hibukuro” in a Kyomachiya, we created a “fukinuke”, or a clearing above the lobby to produce a more open feel.

3. Ajiro Tenjo (Wickerwork Ceiling)

The ajiro ceiling in the annex lobby is made of woven strips of cedar. The materials used for the ceilings in our building have been treated as a preventative measure for fires.

4. Hifumi-Ishi

Hifumi-ishi refer to a scattered design pattern used in earthen floors in which stones are placed in sequences of one, two, and three stones together, adding another accent to the overall design.
