Oshikoji-dori Street (押小路通)

The Oshikoji-dori Street is a street running east-west through Kyoto City. It extends from Kiyamachi-dori Street in the east to Senbon-dori Street in the west, running between Nijo-dori Street and Oike-dori Street. West of Senbon-dori Street it passes diagonally under the elevated railway of the JR Sanin Main Line and is connected to Oike-dori Street.

It corresponds to the Oshikoji of Heiankyo. It runs a block north of Oike-dori Street and passes along southern edge of Nijo-jo Castle. The section between Horikawa-dori Street and Senbon-dori Street contains two wide lanes in each direction, under which Kyoto City Subway Tozai Line runs and where Nijojo-mae Station and Nijo Station are located as well.
