“Kyo-machiya” means Kyoto's traditional house.
Near Nijo-jo Castle in Kyoto, there are two Kyo-machiya which had been renovated into guesthouses.
One had built 100 years ago, and another had built 80 years ago.
This time, I have visited these 2 guesthouses called “Hostel Mundo Kyoto” and “Hostel Mundo Chiquito.”
Let me introduce with the bar called “Bar Otro Mundo” owned by the same owner.
The word “Mundo” named in each guesthouses and the bar comes from the Spanish, meaning “World” in English.
The owner Mr. Yonehara was a backpacker who had been traveling more than 100 countries over 8 years. Other staffs are also travelers who have been to other countries and places.
As they themselves were travelers on their journey, they would welcome travelers coming to Kyoto from all over the world. They would welcome them with warm hearts and would provide the place where everyone can interact without any hesitation.
Able to feel the traditional atmosphere of Kyoto, around Kawaramachi station is said to be the busiest area in Kyoto.
Kawaramachi is convenient for sightseeing that it’s close to the places like Kyoto’s main kitchen “Nishiki Ichiba,” famous shrine “Yasaka Jinja,” “Chion-in” which is famous for “Joya no Kane (the bell ringing out the old year).
