I could pretend to be an anonymous traveller writing a 'real' review of the Kyoto guest house, but the reality is that I met Nao (the co-manager with his wife Kaori) back in Brazil in 1999 when I was travelling in South America. We had an amazing time travelling together in his smashed up Ford car for a really short... More

As an budget minded traveler I usually end up in the characterless cheap inns and backpacker hostels. I wanted to visit and feel traditional Kyoto. I only stayed three nights here, but felt like home. This place is brand new, spotless clean, but at the same time traditional. The owners have done a great job creating this traditional Japanese atmosphere... More

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
