Gojo Karasuma, situated between Kyoto Station and Shijo Karasuma, is dotted with fun retro-look buildings housing a variety of shops and galleries, as well as an array of appealing new restaurants and stores that have recently begun to open, such as cafes attached to shared offices, cafes holding regular workshops, and more.
Kyoto Station, known as the “gateway to Kyoto,” is a highly convenient station utilized by large numbers of people. Train lines stopping at Kyoto Station include the JR lines, Karasuma Subway Line, Kintetsu Kyoto Line, and the Shinkansen (bullet train). This area is convenient not only for Kyoto’s central districts, but also for travel to Osaka: the ride from Karasuma Station to Umeda Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line express train is only 44 minutes, and from Kiyomizu Gojo Station to Yodoyabashi Station on the Keihan Main Line is just 56 minutes.

I was already excited by the black theme earthern floor and interior decoration before moving in, and I need that say that after my 1 month stay I was very pleased with its location, quietness in the neighborhood, and the ease of life.
Kyoto station, Shijyo street, the center of Kyoto including Nishiki market were all within walking distance. Because there was a 24 hour supermarket right by the house, Kuronomachiya became our home base that allowed us to travel around Kyoto without having to worry much. I was able to fully enjoy Kyoto before the autumn leaves.
The night was very quiet even though it was close to the center of Kyoto city. And unlike what I read in advance about Kyo-Machiya, there was plenty of natural light during day time that allowed me to read while listening to the sound of sparrows. The kitchen was compacted but included everything that I needed to cook. Needless to say, it was a luxurious 1 month stay in Kyoto.
Although the reservation and contact was done from overseas, Hachise's staff responded carefully from the inquiry time to the completion of the contract so I was able to finish the contract with a peace of mind. Thank you very much. I will come again!
