About the house type       Machiyas in Tokyo have vanished like the other traditional urban house types in any other Asian cities. Nezu 2 Chome, Bunkyo-Ku,  is one of the traditional Machiya districts in Tokyo. Even in Nezu, it is not easy to find the original Machiyas, since Machiyas there are also being dilapidated and changed for practical reasons. Consequently, the typical scene of the alleys, being flanked by Machiyas, with human scale and harmonious soft mood,  changes, too.
