Asty Kyoto was a shopping mall just annexed to JR Kyoto Shinkensen Station. There were many souvenir shops and restaurants along the shopping street. The place was pleasant and crowded at night time when the visitors hurried for their meals prior to taking the train back.

We visited ASTY on Kyoto Station’s South side for breakfast before going through the Shinkansen gate there for a bullet train south. ASTY is a typical long-corridor mall that can be found in big train stations throughout Japan. Very clean, it features restaurants and various shops, including those where souvenirs can be easily purchased by those heading to trains. When we stopped by at 7:30 a.m., only a few places had opened, such as McDonald’s and Hoshino Coffee. We chose to eat at Hoshino, where we enjoyed the food and service. This mall is a good place for a sit-down meal when leaving or arriving by the Shinkansen, though early breakfast options are limited. This mall would likely appeal most to those using the bullet train. I would not recommend it as a destination when visiting Kyoto.

Being a major train station's mall, Miyakomichi + Asty Road mall is extremely easy to navigate because it is small, linear and has the right retail mix i.e. shops suitable for travelers and busy office workers. Great for souvenir shopping because they have almost all categories of souvenirs on this one little "street", thus no time wasted here compared to shopping at the large department stores nearby where you'll have to search around for the right products. Here are the shops that bring comfort and convenience: - MacDonald's right at the beginning of this linear mall is great for tourists who simply need some familiar foods - Hoshino cafe is the second shop selling famously fluffy pancakes which customers are queuing hours for at its Singapore's branch - Bell mart and another large supermarket which has surprisingly good prices for a wide variety of cooked foods. It was always packed with local office workers buying lunches/dinner home. - A classy book store was awesome for stationery and book lovers. - Uniqlo and some smaller apparel shops. - So many restaurants but we didn't know which are good. There's a Chinese restaurant at the end though. They also have the locally famous 551 Horai meat bun/ siew mai/ Chinese food chain. - Shops selling three main kinds of souvenirs: 1) Craft souvenirs + pre-packaged food souvenirs 2) Freshly made food souvenirs 3) Beauty/medicinal products at pharmacies like "Watsons" Miyakomichi + Asty Road are two malls separated only by an open area in between that allows commuters to take an escalator up to the Kintetsu train station. Don't really know the difference between the two malls since they just seem like one continuous stretch of shops. Perhaps Miyakomochi feels like it has more higher end restaurants and shops versus Asty Road. But honestly, feels about the same.

Asty Road is located right inside the Kyoto train station. You’ll find coffee shops, gift shops, clothing stores and a lot of restaurants. You get off your train and everything is there! However, the connection outside of the station to get inside the station to get to stores is a bit confusing.
