The apartment is located in the CENTER of the city. Karasuma Oike is a great place to use as a hub to get around in Kyoto.
There are a variety of transportation options as well (2-5 min away from the subway).
Getting around on bike is also quite good. The area is filled with shops, bars, and restaurants.
Famous must go to places such as Kawaramachi and Nishiki markets are at a walking distance as well.
No better location than here.
