It takes about 15 minutes on foot from HACHIJOGUCHI exit at Kyoto Sta. to our guesthouse . If you are planning a sightseeing after leaving your luggage, we recommend you to buy a 500 yen one-day bus pass when you get the city bus #81. There is a bus terminal across from Keihan hotel in front of EL INN hotel. Get off a bus at FUDANOTSUJI bus stop which is the second stop from the station. You need to push the button to tell a driver that you will get off at the next stop. After you booked, we will send you a map to get our guest house.
We are located in the southside of Kyoto station. From the closest bus stop it's very convenient to go to touristic places such as TOFUKU-JI, KIYOMIZU temple, FUSHIMIINARI, GION and so on. That bus stop, Subway station KUJO, convenience store, supermarket and 100 yen shop are only within 5 minutes walk.

Informations about Guesthouse Shitamachi-Kujo
This new guesthouse was opened on Nov 11, 2013. Guesthouse Shitamachi-Kujo is run by two Japanese men. As one of them is a language instructor (English, French, Spanish and some Chinese), you won't have any language problem here. The other is a carpenter. He renovated more or less 90 year old house keeping an old Japanese atmosphere.
Shitamachi-Kujo consists of two houses next to each other. One is only for female travelers to have them stay safely and relaxedly. The other is for a family, a group or old married couple. We are not willing to host young couples because of thin walls and FUSUMA. If you ask better service or more privacy, please stay at hotels. But if you want to experience real Japanese old culture, this is the place to stay.
