We have two shops in Kyoto. Please check carefully which one you are to come to. This page is for Camellia FLOWER in NINENZAKA, near Kiyomizu temple.

[Note] A new tea ceremony shop has opened facing on Ninenzaka-street recently. It's NOT us. Please do not get mixed up. We are one alley off the street in a quiet residential area.
We are hard to find, but really worth it :)
[By Taxi] Please tell your taxi driver to take you to 'Kodaiji, Ninenzaka' Every taxi drivers should know this one of the most visited tourist area. If not, ask him to call 075-525-3238 and we will explain.
[From JR Kyoto station] Kyoto City Bus #100, #110 and #206 to Kiyomizu-Michi.
Cross the street, then come up the hill towards Pagoda. Pass the pagoda and keep up the hill, then about in 100m, there's a stairs going down on your left. Please go down, and the street is called Ninenzaka. Keep walking and in about 30m, you will find a small alley going to your left, with a sign says 'dead end' with a geisha painting on it. Please come into it and Camellia is on your left at the end of alley.
[From downtown] Kyoto City Bus #207 to Higashiyama-Yasui.
Keep walking along the street about 50m, then turn left to go up the hill about 100m until you find a stone-made Torii gate, then turn right. The street is called Ninenzaka. In about 30m, you will find a Hello Kitty shop on your right. Then after that there's a small alley going to your right with a sign says 'dead end' with a geisha painting on it. Please come into it and Camellia is on your left at the end of alley.
Either way, it takes about 15 minutes by bus normally, but takes much longer on weekends and during tourism season. Please check beforehand and take enough time to travel.
