Neighbourhood
Shimogyo-ku
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.

The baths were divine, but way too hot for my taste. There were 3 of them, but each one was very hot! I think there should have been 3 different temperatures. I could not last more than 10 minutes in any of them. Food was plentiful and delicious and presented in an amazing way.

I stayed here with a friend over a couple of days and it was great value for money. The room is spacious and clean, and the hot springs provided a great way to wind down in the evening. The breakfast food was definitely one of the highlights, too. It's only a short walk from

Clean, modern and cools japanese style hotel. It has everything you may need and they offer you every little service so that you have to do literally nothing but relax. The hotsprings were also clean and big. And food was even the best part. We had an incredible night in here.
