'Daibei-zukuri' Walls – Machiya House Features

When you think of Kyoto-style machiya homes, you most likely imagine buildings with latticed windows and sliding doors that face the street, right?

However, there are machiya homes that have no lattice windows and doors – but “daibei-zukuri” walls instead! Daibei-zukuri walls faced streets directly and created enough space for a “senzai” front garden.

This type of machiya house was built exclusively for wealthy merchants and doctors, and was considered a symbol of wealth as it required more land and space than a typical machiya.  ‘Yoitsubaki’ Machiya House boasts 2 gardens, which you can enjoy during your stay in Kyoto City.
