We spent 4 nights here during our visit to Kyoto. It promised a taste of traditional Japanese culture and didn’t disappoint. The staff were very friendly, eager to help and generally had a smattering of English.
The rooms were as we expected with Tatami mats,...More
This is a good choice if you want to experience a Ryokan at a fair price. The rooms are authentic and the facilities very clean. Personnel are friendly and very helpful. There's little in the way of extra amenities such as bottled water and food....More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
