We are located right in the middle of the Fushimi sightseeing area, so how about seeing some of Kyoto’s great sights after visiting us?The most famous of the sights is the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Located less than a 5 minute drive from Okayama Kougei, you can hike through the many scarlet arches all the way to the top of the mountain. Along the way is a tea shop with a beautiful view of southern Kyoto city.
Sake lovers can also enjoy sightseeing in Kyoto’s Fushimi ward. You can enjoy sake tasting at the Gekkeikan sake brewery, and relax at any number of established restaurants. In addition to Gekkeikan, you can also visit any of the other nation-wide famous breweries, such as the Kizakura or Takara Sake Breweries. The sake shop district still retains its historic layout and atmosphere, making it an ideal place to visit. Visitors can also ride a traditional boat down the canal running through the district, enjoying the sights of weeping willows, old breweries, and the historical city along the way. Near the Otesuji shopping street is a small section known as “Ryoma-dori.” The name comes from a famous historical figure: Ryoma Sakamoto, a samurai who played a leading role in the movement to overthrow the Tokugawa Shogunate at the end of the Edo Period. He used the area for sending and receiving contact between Satsuma (Kagoshima Prefecture) and Choshu (Yamaguchi Prefecture) There is also a Japanese style hotel there called Teradaya in which tours and overnight stays are permitted.
