Location

Miyama-cho, Kyoto, Japan

This brand new thatched cottage was built by local wood craftsmen using exclusively local timber in collaboration with our own thatched roof specialist. Completed in 2013 the result is a blend between the best of the old thatched architecture with modern more compact floor plan and features like underfloor heating and full air conditioning.
The deck provides a great space for eating outdoors or reading a book in the shade while taking in the scenic view.
Downstairs the floor plan is open and functional with a combined modern fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge.
Upstairs under a canopy of thatch there are comfy beds for 5 people and extra futons if required (for up to 7 guests in total). There are 3 single beds in one bedroom and a double bed in a separate room.
The traditional wooden bathtub is a treat for the senses as this type of wood (Japanese cedar) gives off a wonderful perfume.

Miyama where I am living in now is a beautiful place. The region is surrounded by the mountains. There is the clean river where you can swim in the summer. There is no distraction like a big city in Japan. Instead, you can hear frogs singing, trees rustling etc.Moreover, the people here are more connected with each other compared to cities. Come and experience the real community in the nature of Kyoto.
