Sliding Doors - Machiya House Features
As you may have noticed, many traditional Japanese rooms are known for their versatility.
Sliding doors (‘shoji’ doors and ‘fusuma’ doors) are used to create one large room, or to create multiple small-sized spaces. They can also hide furnishings or facilities depending on the occasion. Tables are often moved around and rearranged to transform a bedroom into a living room, and vice-versa! We think this versatility is just one of many charming characteristics of machiya homes.
Hidden behind the shoji door at ‘Shikoku-an’ Machiya House is a fully furnished kitchen. When the shoji door adjacent to the kitchen is closed, you can even create a private bedroom with garden view!
