When I first came to this ryokan, I was hesitant because of the negative reviews. However, the staff was very welcoming and helpful. They showed us some places to travel to and welcoming. There were fresh sheets and linen to sleep on, hot tea, and...More
The location of this ryokan was probably its best feature. The rooms were very small, and the walls were so thin that we could hear others' conversations. Our room also had an unpleasant cabbage-like odor. At least there was an air conditioner, which made the...More

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.
