Old World had heard about this property before it went to market, and were able to find the right buyer at the right time. We represented the overseas buyer of the property who was as thrilled as us to have a chance at owning a property in Gion's most elite neighbourhood.

To our knowledge, this is the only property that we are aware of where an international buyer was able to successfully purchase. We congratulate the new owner, the seller and are excited to facilitate further developments in future stages.

Property Acquisition Number Four, Kamogawa Hospitality Property

We would like to announce our fourth property acquisition, directly adjoining to our previous three lots.

This fourth property's positioning is on the backstreet, similar to the previous lot, which squares off the entire property boundary and further improves the entrance way, as well as access by car and taxi. In addition, this gained street front means the accommodation property may increase in size, allowing us to create a larger full service hotel that further enhances the scale and quiality of the property we are invisioning.

The area located between the scenic Kamogawa River, and Takase canal, once called Gojo-Rakuen (Gojo-Paradise). The purchased property is located on the immediate river bank, overlooking Kamogawa river, with the mountain range behind Higashiyama district clearly visible from the front of the property.

The riverbanks of Kamogawa are prime cherry blossom and autumn leaves viewing spots, and are popular walking and cycling routes for residents and tourists.

Third Property Acquisition, Kamogawa Hospitality Property

We would like to announce our third property acquisition, directly adjoining to our previous two acquired lots.

This third property's positioning, has now allowed us to create an entrance way for our planned accommodation development. Our property now gains a very important point of access by car and taxi from the street behind the river front. In addition, this gained street front means the accommodation property may increase in size, allowing us to evolve into a full service property, that further enhances the ambiance of the property we are envisioning.

The area located between the scenic Kamogawa River, and Takase canal, once called Gojo-Rakuen (Gojo-Paradise), this neighbourhood enjoyed a colourful past as Kyoto's pleasure quarters until the 1950s. In the 7th century, this area gained infamy when it was the residence of Nimamoto-no-Toru, the main character in the classic work of Japanese literature Tale of the Genji.

The purchased property is located on the immediate river bank, overlooking Kamogawa river, with the mountain range behind Higashiyama district clearly visible from the front of the property.

The riverbanks of Kamogawa are prime cherry blossom and autumn leaves viewing spots, and are popular walking and cycling routes for residents and tourists. In summer, restaurants open balconies looking out to Kamo River, as they have done for centuries since the time when Kyoto was the capital of Japan. There are pathways running alongside the river, stepping stones that cross the river, as well as bridges and thoroughfares that connect the historical Higashiyaama district with modern central Kyoto.
