Welcome to machiya Daiboshi shared office!

Along the old Osaka road in Itami city where townhouses and storehouses remain from the Edo period, we renovated a townhouse built about 300 years ago into a shared office with the aim of maintaining traditional wooden architecture and cityscape scenery. It was used as a sake brewery for the local Itami Oimatsu Sake Brewery, and in the late Meiji period, my great-grandfather purchased the rights to the sake brewing industry and brewed sake 'Daiboshi.' After the war, it was used as a residence.

We operate a shared office that boasts a high repeat rate, and can be used not only as a free space, rental conference room, and rental office, but also as an event venue as a place for regional activities and exchanges. We aim to be a facility where young and old people and foreigners can easily commute while preserving the historical architecture of Itami City.

 

The building of machiya Daiboshi is one of the few machiya townhouses that have the structure of a traditional Japanese house built in the mid-to-late Edo period. At that time, it was used to operate a sake brewery, which was Itami's industry. Today it is used in a variety of ways, such as remote work, shared offices, and halls. We have launched this project to open the building to foreigners to introduce and experience Japanese culture. Guided tours are provided by experienced Japanese housewives and friendly locals. Enjoy your stay in a homely atmosphere. Prices start at 5,000 yen per person.

We operate a shared office space in a reconstructed townhouse built in the Edo period that was left behind in Itami City. We offer a variety of spaces that can be used for a wide range of purposes by individuals and groups. The first floor space, with its high ceiling and thick beams that convey the atmosphere of the time, offers a free space with 8 seats and a counter with 4 seats. There is also a conference room that can accommodate up to 10 people for group use. The second floor of the shared office space is available for monthly rentals.

Itami City flourished as a sake brewery in the Edo period (1603-1867), and maps from that time show that the area was lined with many town houses. In recent years, the area has been reconstructed into buildings and offices, and there are fewer opportunities to learn about the conditions of those days. The building is not only used as a shared office, but also as a place to hold various events such as a marché and lectures on a regular basis so that visitors can learn about the history of the region and Itami City.
