blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and

Come out of the hotel and turn left walk 3-400m to Karasuma Okie. Take the Karasuma line south to Kyoto station and change onto the Nara line to Inari. It should be signposted from the station

You need to book a triple room then there will be 3 twin beds. The room is big enough for 3 people. It is very close to a subway station but I forgot if it was JR.
