A machiya (traditional townhouse) in Kyoto with narrow frontage and deep depth.
Many machiyas have a garden that runs from the entrance to the back,
and the wind that blows through the garden keeps them cool in the summer.
There are many Machiya style cafes in Kyoto.
My favorite is Ueshima Coffee Shop Kyoto Teramachi Shop!
It is a blissful time to drink iced milk coffee at the seat in the back where you can see the spot garden.
