Kyoto is not only famous for its many temples and shrines, but also for its many historical machiya traditional wooden merchants’ houses. Some have even been turned into hotels, combining the buildings’ classic ambience with modern creature comforts. If you love old-school Japanese architecture as well as all things kawaii, Resi Stay Nishiki may just have the perfect spot for you: its new Hello Kitty-themed room.

The interior boasts design touches and artworks based on our favourite cat – she’s dressed as a maiko (apprentice geisha) – that blend in perfectly with the traditional architecture and furnishings of the machiya.

You’ll find Hello Kitty’s signature ribbon on the floor and the beds’ headboards, while illustrations of the famous furball can be found on the bedroom wall, the building’s original fusuma sliding doors – even inside the closet.
