Old house in Kyoto

I had a chance to stay an old townhouse in Kyoto.
The house is located at the northern side of the Kyoto imperial garden.

The house is called as "Shokoku-An".
Let's go inside.

Small garden with a wooden terrace.

Traditional low table ("Chabudai") in the living room.
It is so quiet. Although the recent concrete houses was sealed up and keep for quiet,
The house was surrounded by the natural quietness in Kyoto.
Actually, I got up in the next morning due to a light sound of drizzle.
