There is the Gion festival in July. You can hear Gion musicians even in front of the apartment. I can really enjoy the Gion festival. It is not a 5-minute walk to Shijo Karasumaru-dori, the center of the Gion festival. It's very convenient.
Because there is a shrine next door, it is very quiet. Also, it is perfect for walks because there is a public transport station nearby.
It is within a 10-minute walk from the municipal subway and Hankyu train station. I think that it is a good distance for a walk.
