Hotori is located in Miyagawacho - one of five kagai (geiko & maiko district) in Kyoto.
Close to the city center, the neighborhood is yet quiet and traditional where genuine Japanese teahouses (ochaya) stand side by side.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Gion, Ponto-cho, Nishiki Market, etc. are all within walking distance. Sightseeing spots such as Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama area, Kinkakuji Temple, Ginkakuji Temple, and Kyoto Imperial Palace are also only a bus or train ride away.
With stations on the Hankyu and Keihan lines nearby, day trips to Nara, Kobe, and Osaka are also easy.
Right in front of the villa flows the Kamo River. Get refreshed by walking or jogging along its seasonal nature—different kinds of cherry blossoms in Spring, or vivid red of maple leaves in Autumn.
