          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
