The Aya Inn is not a perfect historical machiya house.
Instead, the owner replaced the bones of an old machiya and transformed it from ground up, using 3-cm thick solid Japanese Iyo cedar throughout the entire house.
The interior walls are traditional plaster, but have been freshly renovated in all high-traffic areas.
At the owner's insistence, however, core traditional elements like the ceiling beams have been preserved in their original forms.
