We are  a small house in Shimogamo. It is nice and peaceful residential area.
Please come explore another side of Kyoto. 

Take the city bus number 205 and get off at "Shin Aoibashi" stop. 
You may purchase a "one day bus pass" at the JR Kyoto station(or on a bus) for 500 yen, which I highly recommend to all travellers in Kyoto.
