Located on a quiet lane in Southern Higashiyama, we could walk to many sights, including downtown, a multitude of beautiful temples, the Geisha district, restaurants, and more. There is a subway station close by and...

About the neighborhood
Shirakawa is located 2 mins from the main historical Nene's Path. The traditional Geisha district of Gion is 4 min walk along the edge of the Shirakawa Stream. Also the upmarket restaurant area of Pontocho along the banks of the Kamagawa River is an easy stroll. This whole area is flat and an easy walk and as with all Kyoto is quiet and perfectly safe. Fifteen minutes walk east are the Higashiyama mountains that have superb hiking.

The area around the house has many interesting shops and is steeped in Kyoto history. The highlights of Kyoto; Heian Jinju, Kyoto Museum, Nanzenji, Kodaiji and Chion-in Temples, Maruyama Park, Philosophers Path and many more are an easy stroll from Shirakawa Cottage. There are many interesting cafes, antique shops and specialty shops nearby.
