An important thing in Nara we made it an inn.
Five Machiya that were born in Kidera town about 100 years ago. This building, which was once about to be demolished, has been renovated so that it can be lived in again.
Our core business is an architecture firm called "Fujioka Architecture Laboratory", which has been renovating Machiya and old folk houses for many years.
However, even in Japan , even in Nara, traditional buildings such as Machiya are being demolished one after another.
We want to preserve traditional Japanese buildings for future generations. I would like people who have never lived in a Machiya to know the goodness of living in a Machiya. "Kidera no ie" was born in 2011 with this thought in mind.
Machiya has many wonderful features that are not found in apartments or newly built houses. The warmth of a house made of natural materials such as wood and soil. The comfortableness created by the gentle connection between the house and the garden, the inside and the outside. The spirituality that dwells in the house that continues to repair and use only the parts that have deteriorated.
