Getting around
Komachiya is located in a retro Kyoto shopping arcade lined with fishmongers and grocery Stores and immediately puts you in the center of Kyoto daily life. A short walk takes you to Shirakawa, a willow-tree lined river which meanders through the historical Gion area. Kiyomizu Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Heian Shrine, Nanzenji Temple, Philosophers’ Walk and Ginkakuji are all within easy walking distance. The main shopping areas, department stores and the Ponto-Cho dining and entertainment district are 10 minutes walk.
How to get there
Railway: Higashiyama: 0.1 mi
From JR Kyoto station take the Karasuma line to Karasumaoike station, then take the Tozai line to Higashiyama station. Komachiya is 1 min walk from exit #2. You will find the entrance of shopping arcade just next to the exit #2. Very easy to find us!
