The Karasuma line goes from Sakyo ward to Fushimi ward, and surprisingly the atmosphere around each area can be quite different. There are of course areas where you can find the traditional Kyoto atmosphere, but from Imadegawa station to the north, you will find more relaxed lifestyles. Go south of Kyoto station for even more variety.
