    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

    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

    Response from rakuch0u | Property representative |
    Thank you for inquiry. Rakuchou is about 15 minutes by walk from Kyoto Station, about 5 minutes for taxi. If you use Kyoto city bus, please use No.50 line bus. Nearly stop is "Nishinoto-in Sho-men".
