Kyoto Immigration Office

Kyoto Immigration Office大阪入国管理局京都出張所

Kyoto's Immigration Office is not far from the Kamo River, on the north side of Marutamachi Dori. It is actually a sub-office that comes under the wing of the larger Osaka branch.

As Japanese immigration offices go, it is fairly small and user-friendly. The level of hostility is relatively low: most of the clients are students, European or American teachers, or Koreans who have lived in Kyoto for many generations.

Signs are in Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean and English.

For those who are there to update a reentry permit, you need to go around the corner from the immigration office to a small, Chinese-run travel agency. Single entry permits are 4,000 yen, multiple entry permits are 6,000 yen

Note: You can go ahead and buy your stamp before you go into the office; this will save you a trip.
