Guide for Komatsu South guests: Where to hail cabs and buses
Updated: Oct 5, 2020
Make a right turn as you leave the Komatsu South machiya then go left (shown in photo) where the road forks.
Follow this lane to the main road, Higashi Oji Dori (東大路通 ). Taxis often ply this route, making it a good place to hail a cab.
At the end of the lane, turn right and head to this bus stop if you’re planning to go to Gion, the Shijo Keihan train station, the Chion-ji (site of a famous flea market held on the 15th of every month) and Chion-in temples, or the Shijo-Kawaramachi junction in the centre of town, where many shops and restaurants are located.
If you would like to head to Kyoto Station or other destinations in the south of the city, cross the main road, Higashi Oji Dori, and make your way to the Kiyomizu-dera bus stop, also known as the Kiyomizu-michi bus stop. Buses leaving from here go to Kyoto Station, the Tofuku-ji and Sanjusangen-do temples, and the Kyoto National and Kyoto Railway museums.
