Kyoto Station Area

Kyoto – K’s House Kyoto

This time, we will be introducing “K’s House Kyoto,” the largest-scale hostel in Kyoto.
The hostel is located a 9-minute walk from JR Kyoto Station. It is conveniently located, with easy access to a variety of sightseeing locations, such as Kyoto Tower, Higashi Honganji, and Sanjusangen-do. The nightly price is reasonable at 2400 yen, but this facility is gaining popularity thanks to its comparatively clean and comfortable interior.

Rengeo-In ~ Sanjusangen-Do

Although its official name is Rengeo-In, this temple is also known as “Sanjusangen-Do” due to the architectural feature of thirty-three (“sanjusan” in Japanese) gaps between pillars along the main hall.
The number “thirty-three” also represents the number of manifested forms of the Bodhisattva Kannon (Guanyin).
Most of the temple’s buildings have been destroyed at least once by earthquakes or fire, but they have been painstakingly rebuilt via elaborate artisan plans.
