Local Information

Local Information

A 4-minute walk to Sanjo Subway Station and across the Kamogawa River from the central Kawaramachi district. Located near “Gion Higashi,” one of Kyoto's five “flower” districts (花街).
A short stroll south will lead you towards the Shirakawa Dori, where many restaurants and shops, housed in traditional wooden structures, along with cherry blossom trees (a popular area to view sakura in the spring) line the river.

Streets are paved with cobblestone steps, and as you move further east, you will find the Shirakawa River lined with weeping willow trees. Head south towards the most well-known area of Gion, Hanami-koji Street. Although this area is full of tourists during the day, take a short walk from Hatoba-an as night falls, to view a photo-worthy atmosphere created from the warm glow of the traditional lanterns which dot the streets.
