HARUYA Higashiyama


Immortal view

In the afternoon crowded too much, but in the morning there is not anyone yet. Deep breathe with fresh morning air, we start walking to a gift from 1,000 years ago. In the precincts of a World Heritage site, we have gruel gentle porridge, and for souvenirs we have a sandwich of a long-established bakery. It’s modest, but a warm spring. We awoke with cherry blossoms that ancestors also visited in the past.

“Street garden” that connects the old days and the present

“Street garden” which is a typical feature of MACHIYA.
From the entrance to the inner garden of the back, the aisle is straight. The biggest effect of the “street garden” is that the outside is incorporated inside. It is a symbol of a traditional Japanese spirit that leaves attention for compassion and care for others within the mind. In recent years, as convenience regarded too much, “street garden” tends to be renovated. HARUYA has been carefully preserved as a thing to convey a Japanese spirituality.
