From JR Kyoto station:

1: You have to go to central exit of JR Kyoto station after you get out the station gate. You will find Kyoto tower from the central exit of JR Kyoto station.

2: Walk on Karasuma-dori street, which is on the right side of Kyoto tower building, until you get to the next big intersection, called Karasuma-shichijo. Kyoto station is behind you at this point. There is a convenience store called Lawson (blue sign) on the right side of the intersection.

3: Turn right on the intersection above and walk straight on Shichiji-dori street. Please make sure to walk on the left side of the street. You will pass the convenience store called Mini-Stop, Volvo and big intersection called Shichijo-Kawaramachi,

4: Turn left on the next street which is (narrow) one-way street after the intersection of Kawaramachi Shichijo. Do not turn left at the Shichijo-Kawaramachi intersection!

5: Walk straight for one minute. We're in the white building on the right side of the street.

If you have heavy bags, taking a taxi is another good choice. The cost is 600-700yen.
