    This hotel provides a step up experience from a budget ryokan. Expect to be served tea when you arrive, and that you will be asked which size of yakuta you would prefer. Breakfast is served communally, but it is served by an attendant, a nice...More

    Shimogyo-ku
    Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,

    competitive location for ever-new commercial
    structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
    trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.

    How far is the hotel from train station? We will be coming from Tokyo with bullet train. Which station should we get off and once we get off bullet train, do we need to transfer to hotel with another local train service?

    Answer
    Response from rakuch0u | Property representative |
    Thank you for inquiry. Rakuchou is about 15 minutes by walk from Kyoto Station, about 5 minutes for taxi. If you use Kyoto city bus, please use No.50 line bus. Nearly stop is "Nishinoto-in Sho-men".
