About the neighbourhood
The house is very conveniently located next to Tofukuji train station, which is one stop away (JR) from Kyoto station.
It is near a number of interesting places and right next to convenient bus stops. It offers easy access to most of what Kyoto has to offer.
We are less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away from Kyoto station, near the Tofukuji temple (Unesco site), not far from the Sanjusangendo Temple and the National Museum.
It takes less than 10 min to reach the Kyoto station (by train or taxi), about 10 min (by bus) to go to Gion and the touristic geisha area, etc. The bus stop is an easy way to go directly to a number of the important touristic sites of the city.
