Old Mitsui Family Shimogamo Villa

2016/10/03

Hi, good morning. 

It is not suuny today in Kyoto, but  I feel comfortable outside.  

The best season for cycling is coming soon!!

 

Last week, I went to "Old Mitsui Family Shimogamo Villa" by electric-assist bike. 

There is a road for cycling along Kamo River, and I went northward the road toward "Old Mitsui Family Shimogamo Villa" .   

The ground is sand which is good for running or cycling, and I could pedal very easily because of the electric assist bike.   

 The road is wide enough so that I didn't have to worry about hitting someone.

I took a scenic cycling until I got out of the cycling road.

Here is "Old Mitsui Family Shimogamo Villa".  

Three-story wooden house with white wall and tile roofing. 

In 2011, it was designed as an Important Cultural Properties.

The old family of Mitsui establiehsd this as a rest house.

I walked passageway from main building to the ceremony room. 

On the left side, I could see the rock garden surrounded by walls . 

It seems very calm and quiet.

On the right sight,  totally differest view is seem. 

The green forest under the sky. 

I could hear the bird humming and felt nature. 

The stone statue makes us feel Japanse-style garden.

   〇Very steep staircase

      This is dangerous without rope besides the staircase when you go down.  

     Old Japanese houses used to have steep stairs like this.  

     That is kind of old Japanese style. 

    In Machi-ya,  steep staircases are often seem. 

 

 

 

"Old Mitsui Family Shimogamo Villa" is opened from the begining of October. 

It takes about 24 minutes by normal bike, and 20 minutes by electric assist bike. 

I am sure you enjoy the way to the villa and the villa itself. 

 

Thank you
