「Body friendly Machiya guesthouse」
Hibari hostel is machiya guesthouse which built in 1933.
This house had been renovated several times to adapt the life at that time.This time we renovated this house stronger and more comfortable to suit our time while we remained the coziness of old machiya house by using natural materials such as wood or mud. Toilet, shower room and corridor on the first floor are wider and no barrier. The stairs to second floor is gently with handrail.We would like a wheelchair user, people with disability or people with any other background to feel the charm of machiya house and enjoy your travel in Kyoto.
I was born in Aichi and have lived in Kyoto for dozen years or so. I have traveled around the world when I was a student. In the middle of that travel I have worked at Camp Denali in Alaska which was my first experience in accommodation industry. After coming back to Kyoto I've worked at Ryokan（Japanese style hotel) and guesthouse. Book, movie and cat lover (have a cat allergy though).
