Training in Kyoto

I will be in Kyoto, Japan for 2 weeks at the end of June, and wondered if anyone could recommend a Shotokan karate dojo in the city.  I will likely try to work out with the club at Doshisha University, but it would be cool to visit a local dojo in the area.  Any suggestions?  Steve

Good question.  In 1988 they had Ahihara Karate and Shito Ryu

Shotokan is mostly popular in the Tokyo area.

And depending how you travel it could be a 4 hour trip to Tokyo, one way.

Go to the Butokuden, they will have Karate there. Just not sure what flavor.

Thanks for the info.  I think that the Budokan has mostly akido and judo, but I'll check it out.
