Nene House is situated in the Kamigyo-ku district, West of the Imperial palace. The house is located on a quiet side street to the east of the lively Senbon Street which was formerly one of the most populated shopping streets in Kyoto. Nowadays, it's a more local area that is populated with a number of shops with a long standing history creating a unique atmosphere.
From the house, it is a 12 min walk to the classic 1000 year old Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, one of the key sites in Kyoto, and a potential less crowded visit than some of the other key sites in town.
Furthermore, Nene House's westerly location makes it a great base for exploring the city's rich western and north-western areas featuring iconic sites such as Kinkaku-ji (the Golden pavilion), Ryoan-ji (Rock garden) and the UNESCO World Heritage listed Ninna-ji.
