Near Heian Jingu, Marutamachi-dori 5 minute walk

Awazu Laundry Photo, Kyoto, Japan

The "Awazu laundry" is a good alternative to laundries located next to the train stations. This laundry would be a good stop on your way to visiting Heian-Jingu. From JR Kyoto Station take City Bus 5 to "Kyoto Kaikan Bijitusu-kan Mae." It is a 10-minute walk from "Higashi-yama" Tozai line subway stop. It is a 15-minute walk from Keihan Railway's Sanjo Station. Once you have found Heian Jingu, you will then need to walk its perimeter heading north until you reach the road called Marutamachi-dori. Once you find that road you will need to walk west for about half a block and then turn right. After turning you will snake your way down a narrow sidewalk-like road until you see a large building. The laundry is located to rear of this building. I was unable to confirm the hours of operation for this facility, but I think it is safe to assume it will be open during regular daylight business hours. This route is probably the most adventurous of the given options listed in this journal, providing the unique opportunity to take in history of Heian Jingu while your clothes are in the spin cycle.
