Location: This site is a little out of the way, sited between a creek and the River and next door to what was the local Yakuza HQ in Kyoto, we think.

After a cold welcome we were pleasantly surprised by our spacey room with a view of a small stream. The small guest house is located in a quiet area, but during the day with the windows open we could vaguely hear traffic and the ding-dong...More
Stayed for 3 nights in the middle of September 2015. It is very easy to find this ryokan. Get off the mus or subway and walk a narrow street along Kamogawa in the direction of the Kyoto Station. The main door is open except night...More

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.
