The ground floor of this two-story townhouse "Coconoto" consists of a large "Doma" - an area within a traditional Japanese house with floor of pounded earth - and a restored "Kamado" which is a traditional Japanese stove typically made with clay and sand. This stove does not function anymore, but there's a modern eat-in kitchen adjacent to the Doma. Other things located on the ground floor includes bathroom (shower and tub), toilet, powder room, washer. The 2nd floor consists of 3 rooms that are connected to one another in line and partitioned by fusuma sliding doors. Two tatami rooms and one flooring room. We have 6 sets of cozy futons to lay on the floor, plus a single size loft bed. There's a small balcony on the 2nd floor where you can dry your laundry.

Thanks to many friends - fellow artists/creators involved in this project, the former inn from 100 years ago is now revived and brought back to life as an accommodation to host international travelers. Located in the heart of old town Kujo Osaka, this perfect fusion of the old and modern features urban greenery and ecological housing. We hope you enjoy this historical yet modern Machiya as much as we do.
