It's a tourist shopping district (mostly souvenirs and specialized packaged food, famous in Kyoto) and a range of convenient dining options put together in a good location. If you're in Kyoto station and don't have much time for food/last minute shopping, this would be a perfect place to be.

If you need a quick (but not fast food) dining option, Asty Road provides a lot of restaurants to choose from. We ate there 3 times and the variety worked well for us, since we had 5 adults and 2 children in our group. Also, within Asty Road, there are shops that sell food items and souvenirs to take home....

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
