I stayed in a single Japanese style room on the third floor. This ryokan was excellently located - about 5 minutes walk from Kyoto or Gojo station. The room was very clean. I am an extremely light sleeper, but I wasn't bothered by my neighbours...More
The family run Inn is great, with friendly staff and owners. Simple, but tasty breakfast. Good location to many major attractions BUT if you want a good nights sleep consider the traditional paper thing walls. Snoring and talking from other rooms made it difficult to...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.
