Kita Ward (Kyoto City) (北区 (京都市))
Kita Ward is one of the eleven wards that constitutes Kyoto City. It consists of a plain mainly for residential areas and northern mountainous areas. There are temples and shrines in Rakuhoku (north of the Capital of Kyoto) area such as Rokuon-ji Temple, Daitoku-ji Temple and Kamigamo-jinja Shrine, and several universities such as Ritsumeikan University, Bukkyo University, Otani University, and Kyoto Sangyo University. Many commercial facilities are found around Kitaoji Station and Kitano Hakubaicho Station.
On September 1, 1955, Kita Ward was divided from Kamigyo Ward to be established as a ward.
