Hi there,

I was just wondering which is the closest JR station to Gion or Miyagawa-cho, preferably on the same line as that from Uji?

And is there anywhere I can find information like this more quickly?

Thanks for your help

Hi there,

There are unfortunately no JR stations near Gion and the closest is Kyoto station itself.

Personally I use Google Maps to look up stations, just search the place and then zoom out until you find a station.

Hope this helps,
