For last 6 months, my wife and I look for new house in Ohtsu (Shiga), Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto, etc. Because my job place move from Tokyo Area into Western side of Japan.
Finally we deciced to select a house in Kyoto, so called Kyomachiya. It is new hosue for us. But actually it is very old. Built in 1901 ( Japanese era name: Meiji 34th). All architectures consist from wooden frame and clay wall. It is impossible to live in the real original old one. So the renovation was applied. Aspect and interior side look a like completely new. But still keep very traditional townhouse style of Kyoto.
We will move to Kyoto in May or June 2015. The contents of this blog will be more related into Kyoto.
