Machiya buried in Kyoto
Location: Karasuma-dori, Aneyakoji-dori, Kyoto
The main streets of Kyoto, such as Kawaramachi-dori, Karasuma-dori,
Shijo-dori and Oike-dori, are lined predominantly with office buildings of
various heights, creating an unplanned, unattractive skyline. Those streets are only dotted with machiyas that have survived decades of ugly development but are “buried” in the shadow of modern high-rise buildings.
