Shops at Kyoto will be closing a little earlier comparing to other cities in Japan, but if you're in Kyoto and a night owl like myself, this is a good place for you to spend sometime before ending the night. Not just restaurants, there are...More

It is a shopping center located next to the Kyoto train station. With clothing, shoes and other type of stores, but above all with many restaurant options. There are approximately 20 restaurants to choose from. Good location as it is close to the train station.

My wife and I stayed in Granvia Hotel, Kyoto for a week during our recent holiday in Japan. Porta Dining is just next to the Hotel and there are over a dozen dining places to choose from, all with very reasonable prices.

Tons of shops. Highly accessible. Similar to other shopping areas. If you like shopping, you'll like this place.

Like other basemen shopping malls, Porta provides a great variety of shopping and dining options though all are more for busy city people. Don't expect anything like fine dining there but a good bowl of ramen is easy!

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
