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 “something like Japan” but “long established 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 understand each other and respect each other through the memorable journey before check-in to after check-out.
