LWIF EP127: Living in Traditional Japanese Townhouses: Kyo-machiya

I never thought I’d want to live in an old Japanese house. I’ve always heard they’re creaky and cold. However, I was surprised at how nice and cozy they could be inside.

More than that, I really enjoyed how you could go back in history and feel the culture of Japan’s old capital city, Kyoto, while staying in one. This video tells the story of what it’s like living in traditional Japanese townhouses in Kyoto called Kyo-machiya.
