This beautifully renovated townhome which we call Blue Tengu (after the legendary creature found in Japanese folk religion) is just a few minutes from the Karasuma subway line which offers easy access to Kyoto station and the commercial center of Kyoto. Since it is only one stop the location is ideal for those coming from Kyoto station. A great base if you have a JR rail pass and want to go on day trips to explore other places like Nara, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima etc.
