The traditional machiya architecture is reflective of Japan’s past through the ages. A tangible form of history, 'machiya' are traditional Japanese wooden townhouses that can still be found throughout Japan today. Today, a machiya townhouse’s architectural design, material, and space not only serve as a place of residence, but are symbols to bring together the past and present.
