Friends Kyo is located in the heart of historic Gion, and 5 mins walk to the main shopping and clubbing districts. Just one street from us is Miyagawa-cho, where Geishas sleep and party. You can spot them, but probably cannot afford them.. but it is ok, you can party with us.

Keihan Train from Osaka - Get off at Gion Shijo station. Our nearest exit is Exit 1, but if you have luggage, it is better to use Exit 7 as it has an elevator.
If you are driving,
Parking - We do not offer parking, and parking around us is expensive, so we recommend you use the parking lot near Sanjo (??) station..
We are THE place to stay in Kyoto. We have everything here. The Shijo main shopping street is 5 mins away, Geishas are one street away. Clubs are 5 mins walk away? you can literally stumble home. Starbucks is 5 mins away? that?s how central we are. We are a 3 mins walk to the Keihan train station, which takes you directly to Kiyomizu Dera, which is still hanging off the cliff, the shrine gates of Fushimi Inari, and Tofukuji (no relation to tofu) and to Osaka...
