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.
"Kobo-san Market 21st of every month--a crowded, popular event."

Toji market is a little off the beaten path, in terms of travelling to it (or walking if you're coming from certain directions). Kyoto station is the closest accessible station if you're planning to arrive at Toji Station take the Kintetsu-Kyoto south. I came from Osaka, through the Kintetsu-Nara line up to Kintestu-Kyoto heading north. Even then, I would consider...
It was a very beautiful garden. But the cherry blossoms didn't bloom very much. How wonderful would it be to be a full bloom cherry blossom?
Finding the place was a little tricky, but once inside, most of the signs had an English translation on them. You get a small bottle of sake with admission and you get to sample 2 sakes and a plum wine at the end. The workers were very friendly and answered our questions.
It was a bit difficult to find, but when found it was amazing. It was really quit, only 3 other people were there. It was the most beautiful temple I saw in Kyoto. The garden is beautiful, and the viewpoints were everybody here is talking about are really one of a kind. Entrance is 400 yen, if you want some...

We came here after visiting Kiyomizu-dera - what a contrast! Kiyomizu is beautiful and of course worth visiting, but the crowds and noise level and selfie-taking, kimono-wearing tourists don't really make it a peaceful experience. Sennyuji is a haven of peace and calm. We came here on an overcast day about 25 minutes before closing and had the place almost...
After our visit of Fushimi Inari Taisha temple, we were thirsty and decided to do a break at Vermillion because some friends recommended it to us in France ! Now it is our turn to recommend this coffee bar. Their iced matcha latte was amazing ! And their cappuccino was beautifully made.
Wonderful food, we had to queue up outside but it was definitely worth the wait.
We all enjoyed our food and the staff were very friendly. The Pork cutlet and egg rice bowl was also the best thing I ate on my trip to Japan.
My wife and I discovered this hidden gem by wandering around Kyoto station looking for a place to eat and got attracted by this small and nice looking restaurant in a small alley. We had to book for three days later as the restaurant is small and always full.
The experience of kaiseki ryori has been wonderful. We sat in...
I booked to stay at the Daiwa Royal Hotel Grande in Kyoto not really knowing what to expect.
Well all i can say is the hotel is amazing ! and the club lounge on level 9 is well worth the extra money .
I stayed in an Executive Premium
Double room on the 8th floor , pictures attached.
The hotel has a lot of modern art.
The rooms were spacious and we were happy for that after staying at hotel rooms of less than 15 sq.mtrs.
Separate toilet and bathroom facilities too.
Service and food is very good too.
Great location 5 mins walk from Kyoto train station. Helpful friendly staff. Lovely rooms with balconies. Free laundry facilities. Hotel has own onsen for guests. Free tea coffee & cold drinks available. Hotel restaurant very affordable after long day out sightseeing. Highly recommend.
Excellent base for southern regions including Nara deer park and central areas of kyoto. Lots of nearby food options, including for vegetarians in B1 of the station.
Staff are very helpful and assisted thoroughly with travel, despite no dedicated concierge.
Welcome drink does not have many non-alcohol or non-caffeinated options.
Rooms are small and need more circulation, but this is...
Sotetsu Fresa Inn in Kyoto is in a very good location. The hotel itself is nice, but small. The entrance to the hotel is a little tricky to find, at the end of a long corridor between two adjoining buildings. The reception/check-in area is on the second floor. No porter services available, so you have to get your own luggage...
