Gosho, Nijo Castle, Kawaramachi, Ponto-cho, Karasuma Oike × Capsule Hotels
Kyoto's charms feature both modern and nostalgic faces. In September of 2018, GLANSIT Kyoto Kawaramachi, a stylish capsule hotel matching the traditional townscape opened for business!
Located in Kawaramachi, Kyoto you’ll find Len, a trendy little hostel with its own built-in café and bar. The first floor’s lounge area, where the café and bar are located, welcomes not only guests, but locals and travelers alike. The atmosphere is laid back and encourages people to come together and have a good time. Its location is convenient for sightseeing around Kyoto as well, with the downtown area and Kamogawa just a stone's throw away.
Today, I'd like to introduce Hostel Wasabi Kyoto Soba, a traditional old house in Kyoto that has been converted into a hostel.
This inn is located in a residential area about 30 minutes by bus from Kyoto Station. The nearest train station, Kitano-Hakubaicho Station, is an 11-minute bus ride away. However, it is in close proximity to a number of tourist attractions, such as Nijo Castle, the Kyoto Imperial Palace, and Seimei Shrine, making this location surprisingly convenient! There is also bus access heading for Kinkakuji (The Golden Pavilion) and Arashiyama.
