When walking on the historic streets of Kyoto, you may notice that the houses look a bit different from back home. That is because they’re traditional Kyoto townhouses called machiya! For many years, machiya were torn down from the way of new shops and hotels, but recently you can find many restaurants located in renovated machiya townhouses. So you can enjoy the historic machiya-feel, the inner garden, the full Kyoto-experience. So enjoy great food, great scenery, and luxury in a machiya! Here are some exceptional restaurants in Kyoto, from fancy to very reasonable!
