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.
It is one of the famous shrine of Kyoto. Aoi Matsuri is so beautiful traditional festival on May, so please check the schedule ahead of time and then plan to visit there.
Just walked through with young daughters also really good experience for me.
Very quiet beautiful place. Your body and mind will be charging positive energy.
This park is very large so if you intend on seeing all of it take good shoes and comfortable clothing. We visited to visit the imperial palace, and found it quite hard to navigate at times.
We were there very early (8.20am) and none of the cafes or palaces open in the park before 9am, so bear that in mind...

Trust the positive reviews of Kikyo Sushi.
On our second day in Kyoto and eleventh day in Japan, we are well aware of the pitfalls of trying to find a balance between a place that is welcoming to tourists without being too touristy/ Westernized. Kikyo Sushi had found that balance without loss of quality or comfort.
Like complete fools, we...
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Matsuzakagyu What’s while visiting Kyoto last week. Even though we are accustomed to fine steak where we live (Texas), the beef at this restaurant was phenomenal. We also enjoyed the garlic friend rice. Our server was very friendly and helpful.
My daughter and I stayed here in 2016
We were doing a trip round Japan
The hotel is beautiful but so overpriced.
In saying that, Japan is the most expensive country I have ever visited
The hotel is in a lovely location and is of a superb quality with everything you could need.
I would recommend you check the prices...
One of the most famous ryokan of Kyoto and probably the best! Amazing rooms and facilities in a pure traditional japanese house.
We were served a dinner set menu which was great. Dressed with kimonos and testing so many new traditional meals
I can't say enough about this great ryokan! Our room was clean and large- coming from Tokyo this was refreshing! The price is very reasonable compared to the other options nearby, and it's a great deal.
Our hosts were incredibly nice and helpful. Example: When they saw we had a bunch of smaller coins they switched them to larger ones....
Our family of four visited Kyoto for the first time last week and had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Sanjo Muromachi. We had a delightful stay at this elegant hotel, conveniently located in the center of Kyoto, not far from the Karasuma Oike Station. The neighborhood is tucked away in a somewhat residential area, but there are many...
My wife and I stayed here for three nights in the hottest week in July. This inn gave us and authentic traditional inn experience at a great price, and the staff were very helpful in explaining the etiquette to us, and in booking dinner and TakQBin reservations. Would definitely come again.
