Breakfast is served communally, but it is served by an attendant, a nice touch. The baths are nice, though I'd prefer the outdoor baths being accessible during both...

We have had an enjoyable two nights stay at the Rakucho, even though we were out exploring Kyoto for the most of our stay. It is a great place to retreat to after a long day out. Upon arrival at the hotel at 1.30pm, we were told that check-in was at 4pm. Which isn't a problem as the staff are...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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.
