    Fun to stay in a Japanese style ryokan near the transportation hubs of Kyoto. The staff was friendly and helpful, all as expected. The room was clean, the bathroom small but incredibly efficiently set up. We used the washer-dryer available, too. Recommended.

    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

    The only contact details I have is the fax number: from outside Japan: +81-75-353-6968, and from inside Japan: 075-353-6968. Or you can book via a third party booking agency like tripadvisor, hotelscombined, agoda etc.
