I had a great time spending one night in the inn. Any longer and it might not have been so quaint. Although there was air conditioning, it was still a hot night and we couldn't enjoy opening our windows into the nice garden below. Internet...More
I am already almost a professional ryokan reviewer, having stayed only in ryokans during my visits to Japan. Kawashima Inn (or Ryokan) is definitely one of the best so far. It is small, maybe 5 or 6 rooms, everything is in the same scale as...More

I stayed at Inn Kawashima in March/April. It is very conveniently located very close to the subway line, and only a block from the main Shijo Street, which has lots of shops and restaurants, and transportation. Really easy to get around from here.
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.
