This time, I’d like to introduce you to “Eight Nest Kitashirakawa,” located in the Kitashirakawa area, one of the most popular places to live in Kyoto.
First of all, it’s a 10 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride to Kyoto University, and a 10 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride to Kyoto University of Arts. This share house is located right in the middle of both universities, and has excellent access. In addition to residents from both universities, there are also working people who have jobs in the area.
There are not many apartments available at the moment due to corona, but there are many people from overseas who are studying at Kyoto Bunka Nihongo Gakko, a Japanese language school located in Kyoto University of Arts.
From here, it’s also relatively easy to get to Doshisha University, Kyoto Institute of Technology, and Kyoto Sangyo University!
If you have a bicycle, you can easily go to the center of Kyoto such as Shijo, and if you use Demachiyanagi Station (Keihan Line), the first station of the limited express, you can easily go to Osaka without having to change trains.
The share house area is dotted with reasonably priced, delicious, and stylish restaurants and cafes, as there are many students living in the area. Whether it’s takoyaki, yakiniku, teppan, or a cafe, you’re sure to find your favorite place!
Many of the residents living in the share house have found their favorite restaurants and enjoy visiting with other housemates and enjoying the area. One resident even found a favorite store and started going to the salon of a hair stylist and shiatsu practitioner who are regulars at that store, enjoying the area to the fullest.
The heart of this house is the large living room. This is where the residents gather to eat together, watch movies, have parties, and hold “welcome parties” for new residents and “farewell parties” for those moving out. The kitchen in the living room has two sinks, two induction heaters, plates, pots, pans, cooking utensils, a microwave, a toaster, and a rice cooker, and is fully equipped with the basics. And since there are two sinks and two induction heaters, it won’t get crowded even on busy mornings!
The private room is furnished with a desk, closet, shelves, a wire for drying clothes in the room, a mirror, and hooks for hanging coats.
There are also two showers, two toilets, and two washrooms.
With basic facilities and a great area to live in, Eight Nest Kitashirakawa, why not start your new life in this share house!
