          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.

          How far is the hotel from train station? We will be coming from Tokyo with bullet train. Which station should we get off and once we get off bullet train, do we need to transfer to hotel with another local train service?

          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".
