Kikokuso is such a homey ryokan. My heart melts when I think of the old couple who runs the place. They were super nice and seemed so happy we were there. We felt as if we were staying in our grandparent's really nice house, not...More
Kikokuso is a gorgeous guest house about a 10 mins stroll from Kyoto station.
Tucked in a little back street across from the park, the location is the best - close enough to stroll to main public transport hub and far enough that you feel...More
This is my third time staying in Kikokuso ryokan. There's just something about this place that makes me want to come back every year (despite the relatively heavy price tag). It's so traditional and the owners there are so nice you don't even feel like...More
We had the most wonderful stay at Kikokuso Ryokan. This ryokan is run by the Yoshimura family, and what a wonderful, friendly and most welcoming family they are.
It is within 10-15 mins walking distance from the station, on a quiet street of a main...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.
