Share house in Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto, where you can rent a kimono and enjoy walking around the area.【8NEST Gojo Omiya】

I'd like to share with you a plan to enjoy a holiday while living in a share house!


8NEST Gojo Omiya just opened in May 2020!

It's a large scale international share house for 13 people

with access to Tambaguchi Station, a straight shot to Kyoto Station on the JR line,

new Umekoji Nishi Station, and Omiya Station on the Hankyu Line

all within walking distance.

We hope that many people, both domestic and international, will use this house in the future,

and we are keeping it clean and tidy while taking measures against corona.


One of the joys of sightseeing in Kyoto is

to be able to stroll through the historical town in a kimono ^^.

You don't need to prepare in advance as there are many shops where you can easily rent a kimono.


~Benefits of Visiting Kyoto in a Kimono ~
■Kyoto Kimono Passport
Booklets and free smartphone applications distributed

at Kyoto Tourist Information Center, Kyoto City Hall and other facilities around Kyoto

This program was started with the aim of increasing the number of people wearing kimono

in Kyoto and revitalizing the kimono industry.

By simply showing the "Kyoto Kimono Passport" booklet or the app,

you can receive special offers and services (discounts on admission fees, meal costs, etc., and gifts)

at over 400 facilities and shops.

■Rescue service for when you're out of shape

This is a great service for people who are not used to wearing kimonos in everyday life.

With your passport, you can have your collar and hem altered

by showing your passport at one of the 200 or so partner shops in Kyoto.
