I passed by this place and it was being gutted completely. Real estate developers in Kyoto are remarkably cold-hearted about the city's rich architectural heritage. (The brown siding creeping up this building is the outline of another old wooden place destroyed not long ago.) Seeing the worn floorboards all piled up for the trash made me a little sad. But perhaps they will save the structure and just renovate the inside? We shall see...
