Whole House for One Group A Day

Two photographers have restored a 110-year-old high-quality traditional Japanese thatched roof house in Miyama, Kyoto. Currently, the thatched roof is covered with tiles, but if you go up to the attic, you can still see the splendid thatched roof. In the "The Thatched Roof Gallery & Library", you can enjoy the photo exhibition of the owners photographic works. Without changing the original form of the traditional Japanese house, they restored and reused the traditional fittings by themselves, and renovated the interior to suit the modern lifestyle while retaining the traditional long wooden veranda and tatami rooms with a view of the Japanese garden covered with vivid green moss.

Life in Rural Japan
Two photographers from Japan and Spain who traveled and photographed around the world picked up Miyama as their home. What do they find in Miyama, and what do they want to do here?




“It was my first time to rent a whole house, so I was very happy to be able to use this big house. Everything was clean and beautifully renovated. Especially the bath was amazing! BBQ at Japanese garden was very spacious and comfortable. We could enjoy firework at picnic area. Location of the house is wonderful and surrounded with nature. We could swim in the river nearby. At night, the sky was full of starts. We could see even the Milky Way! Our children are also very happy. Next time, we would like to stay in another season. Highly recommended!!
