This property is located in the center of Kyoto, about a 7-minute walk from "Shijo Station" on the Subway Karasuma Line.
The Shijo-Karasuma area has prospered as a center of finance and business since ancient times, and is a major area that can be considered the heart of Kyoto.
Subway Shijo Station and Karasuma Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line are directly connected, and it is also the departure and arrival point for many buses that travel around the city, making it highly accessible to other parts of Kyoto.
Within a 10-minute walk, you can find not only financial institutions and commercial facilities such as hotels and department stores, but also living facilities such as convenience stores, supermarkets, and clinics.
In addition, there are many quaint restaurants and guesthouses that have been renovated from traditional Kyomachiya. You can always encounter a wide range of people, from locals to tourists, around the area.
Shijo-Karasuma is also known as a famous place where Yamaboko floats of the Gion Festival, a major summer event in Kyoto, are lined up.
Every July, festive music known as "Gion-bayashi" that makes a "konchinkichin" sound echoes here and there, even just walking around the city will get you excited.
Furthermore, the highlight of the festival, the grand procession of Yamaboko floats on July 17th and 24th is visited by thousands of people from local and abroad every year. Tokusayama, one of the 33 floats involved in the festival, is just about a 1-minute walk (about 60m) from the property. This is a location where you can feel and live the summer tradition of Kyoto.
(*Due to the COVID-19, the Gion Festival and Yamaboko float procession in 2020 and 2021 have been canceled.)
