Not too long of a walk from Kyoto station (keep right as the road will split). We received a warm welcome and orientation by Yue. The place is rebuilt. Nice and clean throughout. TIP: The place closes at 11pm, but front left door is accessible...More
Close to Kyoto station and almost touching the nearby temple, this ryokan boasts both Japanese and western style rooms. We were unlucky to get a western style room, which are small, i.e. the tv was about 19" and stood out. What the rooms lack, the...More
Matsubuya inn is just living on the proximity to the park. The hotel is run down and not clean. The staff is police like and hard to deal with for foreigners, little or no English spoken. Door to hotel closes at 10.00 pm sharp and...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.
