Check out our handy guide on using the public transportation in Kyoto, including instructions on how to get to the school from both major airports in Kyoto (Kansai and Itami).
Kyoto is probably one of the very few cities in the world that does not really need any introductions. We could have just left it here, but it if you want to know a little more, please keep reading. Though no longer the capital of Japan it still remains her heart. Buddhist temples, Shinto Shrines, castles and gardens to name all of them would take quite some time. Kyoto remains to be one of the best-preserved cities in the whole of Japan, which makes it a great destination if your goal is to touch the history of Japan.
But with the population of almost 1.5 million and is incredibly well connected to Osaka and Kobe, if you are looking to see modern Japan, Kyoto can offer that as well.
Our school is only minutes away from the wonderful Gion district. Take a subway ride and it will take only twenty minutes to get to Kyoto Station. A 25-minute stroll and you will reach the world-famous Kiyomizu-dera.
We have 9 classrooms and a large communal lounge for our students to relax. It has a large window overlooking the street and the classrooms are designed to facilitate learning in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Gion is one of the oldest and most traditional disctrict of Kyoto, if not Japan. It is not uncommon to cross path with a Maiko (an apprentice Geisha) or even a Geisha herself. People who visit Gion often feel like they have stepped into another period where there were no cars and only people pushing you in their carriages. Hopefully, you manage to hop into one and find your way to GenkiJACS school's entrance door.
