IchiEnSou is situated in an idyllic location, just off the main street in Gion, where you can see Kyoto's geishas and explore one of Japan's most traditional areas. We are close to both the city centre and numerous temples and shrines within 5 minute walk.
The guesthouse IchiEnSou is a newly renovated traditional 1920s Japanese house with authentic charm. We are a small property with just two dormitories, so homely atmosphere and security are guaranteed.

We strongly recommend MK taxi for the service and cost. Please ask a driver to give us a call for the location of IchiEnSou. They might take you to a wrong place otherwise.
Take a JR Nara line train to Tofukuji, the first stop from Kyoto station. Transfer to Keihan line at Tofukuji and take a train bounded for Demachiyanagi. Get off at Gion Shijo and walk out of the exit #6. The building you just came out from is Minamiza theater.
To get to the guesthouse from Minamiza theater, walk one block to the east (to the right when you come out from the exit #6) (walk away from the river on the map) along Shijo street (main street) and turn right at the first traffic light. Walk south for one block (30 meters) from the traffic light, you will see a narrow street (first street from Shijo street, about 3 meters wide) on your left hand side. Walk in to the street for 15 meters from the corner and you will see a small sign, IchiEnSou, on a piece of wood on the black gate of the guesthouse on your left hand side. Please walk in to the passageway and you will find yourself finally arriving at the guesthouse!!
Take a bus #4 or #17 or #205 at A2 platform from Kyoto station and get off at Shijo Kawaramachi. Walk back about 15m to the main intersection of the two busy roads, Shijo and Kawaramachi. From the intersection, walk towards Kamo river along Shijo street and after crossing the bridge, you will see the theater over the traffic light. The directions to IchiEnSou Guesthouse from the theater ( Minamiza Theater ) are shown above.
If you found it difficult to get to the guesthouse, please give us a call from a public telephone outside the theater. Since it takes only 2 minutes for us to go and meet up with you at the theater from the guesthouse, we are more than happy to do so. Please do not hesitate to call us.
