Center of Kyoto

If you want to know where is the center of Kyoto. You have to go to this place. The hexagonal stone is the center.

Going after dark I think only increases the appeal of this place. Lots of well lit temples and walk ways make it quite a magical journey, which for us at least ended with us being lucky enough to catch the monks singing in the last temple.

Came here on a rainy day and was delighted by everything. The highlight was the pink Sakura tree which was in full bloom and the unexpected swans. Definitely a nice little find. :)

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
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.
