Doshisha's main campus is just north of the Imperial Palace Park, along Imadegawa Street. The campus features a number of red brick buildings that would feel right at home at a college in New England. (The university was founded in the late 19th century by an Amherst College graduate from Japan.) The older buildings are wonderful examples of Meiji period... More

This University locates one street north from the Kyoto Imperial Palace. After long walk, we found a nice cafeteria which is open to the general public.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
