You can find Daikoku-yu when you go up north from Gojo St. which is lively with tourists visiting Kiyomizudera Temple. The name of Daikoku-yu comes from the name of the street, Daikokucho St.
One of the features of Daikoku-yu is its women-friendly facilities. For example, a dressing room for women is comparatively large. Daikoku-yu has a ceramic tile mural which has been there for 50 years. The tiles portray beautiful nature, a lake, a mountain with snow and so on.
If you are lucky, you can see maiko near the closing time. A bakery is open next to Daikoku-yu every Sunday. You can buy nice baguette bread there too.
