On this trip we stayed in big 5 star hotels every night apart from 3 nights at Yoshikawa Inn. This Inn simply exceeded them all. The welcome was warm and genuine, the cultural awakening beautiful. There are a lot of customs to learn and participate...More
While in Tokyo we wanted to have tempura feast as my partner is a huge fan and we weren’t disappointed with the decision based on TA comments. The resto offers a set menu and you can’t go a la carte - we decided to go...More
Once again able to only book 2 nights at our preferred ryokan in Kyoto (Shiraume), we decided to try the Yoshikawa Inn Tempra for the other two nights and were more than pleasantly surprised. As in most ryokans, the staff was exceptional, the rooms large,...More

Kyoto Prefecture >
City Center / Kawaramachi / Karasuma / Shijo Omiya
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.
