Kinmata Machiya

Not all buildings in Kyoto look like this. Actually these old machiya are usually sandwiched in between very modern (and usually very beautiful) buildings. But in the past decade or two there has been an effort to save and modernize these classic buildings, such as this one which dates from the early 1800s.

Taken in Kyoto, Japan
