“Marukameya”was founded as Kimono dyer in 1980. “Hanagosho”was created to show people the beauty of Kimonos. Now, here they are in“kyoumachiya Kiotto”so that anyone can experience Japanese culture. We provide the traditional Japanese techniques and the chance to experience it for yourself.
The old days of Japan are being forgotten but now it has become possible to enjoy the music that people loved in those days. Please enjoy authentic sounds and harmony in Kyomachiya. Our soul for Japanese music is called “shijouhan no gei”(play in small room without sound equipment ) and has motivated us to establish Kyomachiya Kiotto.
We provide a variety of experience classes in the hopes that everyone can enjoy Japanese culture. We hope that many people will come to experience our Japanese culture regardless of where they are from. Kyomachiya Kiotto is your first step towards familiarity with Japanese culture.
Kyomachi Kiotto was made from our thoughts that having a homey space will inspire the feeling“Let’s visit here again!”（It’s pronounced Kiotto in Japanese.)and “Let’s wear a kimono! ”(It’s pronounced Kiotto in Japanese.)It is a play on words that encompasses lots of our wishes for people who visit Kyoto.
The best way to appreciate Japanese musical instruments is through playing them yourself. A licensed teacher will teach you how and you’ll be given a certificate of completion at the end of the course. You can enjoy both playing Koto and listening to it.
