A short walk up north from here will take you into some of the traditional "machiya" streets of old Kyoto in the Gion area, and it also happens to be a very good maiko(geisha)-spotting area.

A short hike east will take you up to Kiyomizu-dera, one of Kyoto’s most famous tourist spots.

Nearby attractions include Kiyomizu-Temple which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Kyoto. The main hall is built on a cliff and is designated a National Treasure.

Also nearby are Kodaiji-Temple, Kenninji-Temple, Sanjusangendo-Temple about 15 minutes walk and the National Museum.
