Kamigamo, Kyoto – you might think it is nothing more than a sightseeing spot, with Kamigamo Shrine as its only attraction. But in reality, it is a safe and convenient area with surprisingly many university students living here.
Daily groceries can be done at a Coop supermarket and a 100 Yen Lawson store nearby, both especially popular among university students.
In addition, bakeries, and Gyoza no Ohsho (the main food provider for Kyoto’s students) as well as many other bars and restaurants are in the neighborhood, so you will not have any inconveniences in daily life.
And the best part : Kyoto’s leading fashion quarter, Kitayama, is only 5 minutes away from the house by bicycle.
Kitayama is especially frequented by young people, for its many stylish cafes and restaurants and modern townscape, and is always in the top ranks of Kyoto’s most popular quarters to live in.
Gift shops, cafes, restaurants, botanic gardens, art galleries – Kitayama is the perfect place for a fun weekend stroll!
Also, you might know Kawaramachi as one of the busiest quarters in Kyoto.
From the house, you can reach Kawaramachi by bus without having to change lines!
It might take 35-40 minutes to get there, but Kamigamo Shrine Is the terminal station, enabling you to get a seat even during crowded times.
The bus stop “Kamigamo Shrine” is only 3 minutes from the house on foot.
The closest train stations are Kitaoji Station and Kitayama Station. Both can be reached within 5 minutes by bicycle!
☆Great access to several universities and major train stations☆If you are a student, the access to your university is a big deal.
I actually took my bicycle to see how far it is…
-Otani University: 8 min. by bicycle
It is right beside Kitaoji Station, so you can have a fun bike ride through the shopping street.
-Doshisha University: 13 min. by bicycle
Just 1.5 km further downhill from Otani University!
-Kyoto University: 18 min. by bicycle
Riding alongside scenic Kamogawa River while listening to some music will bring you to Aobashi Bridge in no time! From there, go further until Kamigamo-ohashi Bridge and you will find yourself on Kyoto University’s Yoshida Campus.
-Kyoto Sangyo University: 10 min. by shuttle bus (bus stop: 3 min. from the house)
I’m sorry… I took the bus instead… ;_;
The shuttle bus from Kamigamo Shrine to Kyoto Sangyo University is always crowded with students.
A newly constructed building, a great community and location – all combined in this share house!
