Kyomachiya with a panoramic city view

The southern foot of Mt. Yoshida
An area where nature and serenity spread

Mt. Yoshida is one of the 36 peaks of Higashiyama. Beyond it is the Mt. Hiei where deep green spreads out, where this property is located, surrounded by nature. Students gather here as Kyoto University, one of Japan's leading universities, is nearby. A student district full of affordable but hearty restaurants and second-hand bookstores, where you can enjoy an academic atmosphere.


The neighbourhood is a cultural area with the famous Kyoto University and various museums such as the Mirei Shigemori Garden Museum, Hosomi Museum, and Kyocera Museum of Art. To the east of Mt. Yoshida, cobblestone slopes called "Kaguraoka" are lined with traditional houses built in the Taisho era, giving off a unique atmosphere with a magnificent view. It is also a well-known spot for viewing "Daimonji, Gozan-no-Okuribi Festival". In addition, there are famous tourist destinations such as Heian-Jingu Shrine, Nanzenji Temple, Ginkakuji Temple (Silver Pavilion), and Shimogamo Shrine. An attractive area for both local and foreign visitors.
