Ougi-An Gion Shirakawa is centrally located in Gion, walking distance to major sights and the city center entertainment area as well is in one of Kyoto's famous antique shops streets. It has been renovated to provide luxury-level comfort to its guests, yet has been designed to retain a cozy Japanese feeling with the spirit, esthetic's, and beauty of the traditional Japanese town house.

Local Culture and Location. Ougi-An- is within easy walking distance from the city center as well some of Kyoto's major sightseeing spots in the Higashiyama district ,the Eastern Mountains, including of course the Gion the famous Geisha district, Kiyomizu with Ninen zaka and sanen Zaka, Yasaka shrine, as well Chion in temple, Heian Shrine and more.

Ougi-An- is also a few minutes away from the Kamo river (Kyoto's main river which runs through the city) and a great local park, where you can do as the Kyoto-ites do- take an early morning jog, stroll along the river side, or relax on a park bench and watch the world go by. Another option would be, a an early morning walk in Gion district itself to get a glimpse into the Geisha world before the tourist fills the streets.

The Heart of the City. While it is easy to get to the city center by walking Ougi-An also benefits from good transport links. It has about 20min ride bus connection to Kyoto station and only a 5- 10 minutes walk to Keihan railway Shijo or Sanjo stations on the Keihan railway line.

After experiencing the heart of the city, travel back to the heart of the home and back into local life. Inside the House.
