Live music events at Machiya

1. The distinctive culture of Kyoto has produced many unique Japanese musicians.

2. Kyoto’s spirited music scene includes Machiya live houses that serve as important stages for young artists and as a “home base” for famous established performers.

3. Some Machiya live houses have been created by renovating aged buildings, such as a brewing factory that is several centuries old. Unlike regular music venues with standing room for patrons and drinks-only service, Machiya live houses offer audience seating space for enjoyment of meals and cocktails together with musical entertainment.

4. No matter who you are or how old you are, everyone can enjoy listening in a relaxed setting. And regardless of being a young performer or an established artist, anyone can play on the same stage. The love for music is the common element at Kyomachiya.
