Stopped here for lunch after getting off the JR train from Osaka. There are many options in the 10/11th floor, but if you’re looking for a place that serves beef this is it. You can choose from box sets, or Shabu Shabu or Sukiyaki. We...More

Shabu Shabu was new to me, but really good, the view was great. A little bit expensive - for business ok.

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
