What is HARUYA?
HARUYA is the traditional architecture, called MACHIYA, made by same architectural techniques with shrines and temples of World Heritage or National Treasures. Located two ancient capitals of Japan, Kyoto and Nara, which have two third of the Japanese national treasures. HARUYA in Japanese translates as “sunny, sacred, spring, family”, symbolizing Japan philosophy.
HARUYA is based on three core principles, which remain unchanged in both Kyoto and Nara branches.
1. Original of materials
2. Ordinal of customs
3. Organized of cities
HARUYA’s three principles are what Japanese people desire to convey beyond generations to generations. HARUYA is not “like Japan” but “the Japan”. HARUYA does not require difficult treatment besides “spend quietly at night” while historical buildings more than 100 years old. With classic staples from a long time ago, HARUYA would like to help you have a good journey before check-in to after check-out.
HARUYA has several branches in Kyoto City and Nara City.
Please be careful not to make a mistake with sister branches when visiting.

Structurally, the sound is echoing easily. We appreciate your consideration regarding talking sounds and moving noise.
