    I went there twice and the staff was always helpful and spot on.

    I asked about the location of a ramen restaurant I had spoted, but the staff knew a lot about ramen and pointed me to 2 shops that were closer and very nice.

    The second time to find a place to watch the autumn foliage. They had all the info from time to get there to how advanced it was at each location.

    It is quite crowded though, but there's many staff so the queue goes by at a reasonable pace.

    If they ever read this, thanks for your help :)

    This museum was really cool, although to enjoy it you definitely need at least some knowledge of kanji, and Japanese as well. I don't speak Japanese, but my wife and her friend do, which allowed me to enjoy the museum anyway. It is designed for Japanese students, so there are many interactive exhibits showing the development and history of Kanji. The signs are only in Japanese, although many of the staff speak excellent English. If you don't know anything about Kanji, this isn't the place for you, but for those interested in it and with some knowledge of Japanese, it's worth a visit.

    Beautiful gardens behind this conference center. The layout of the conference center is somewhat spread out and not always well-marked, but the architecture is interesting.

    The place was astounishing and the staff was so helpful!
    They have a place to relax, a powder room, a prayer room, even some gachapon!!!
    They also have a FREE shuttle bus (only for their japaning hotel guests).
    If you want to know more about Kyoto, or just simply have a comfortable, relaxing time, you gotta visit this place.
    100% recommended!! ^_^

    I have been enjoying my Japan Trip in Kyoto. Where I stayed for a few days. We saw some historic places like Prefetural Library of Kyoto. It isw a great place to understand richjness of Japanese history. Kyoto was Capital of Japan. It was spare by American during world war to save the Heritage. Shrine and Temples.

    My wife and I were looking for a place to both eat and cool down after finishing the Philosopher's Path. It was a really hot day and we couldn't find a reasonable place to eat when we stumbled upon the International house. It has a lovely restaurant on the second floor. It's a really interesting place with all sorts of services. Has to be a tremendous asset to the local community.

    Miyako Messe in Okazaki Park is an event space, but I seldom go. A part of Nitten exhibition was displayed in this place. So, I had the opportunity to visit it.

    As most places in Japan we found that this also had the same issue with the staff having not perfect English although one would expect this in a Major Tourist Information centre

    Saying that we did receive the information that we needed and went on our way

    Beware that unlike Europe this Tourist Information centre has very limited opening hours

    This information center located at Kawaramachi-Sanjo, downtown Kyoto is friendly and helpful. Staff speak good English and know their business. Free maps and some coupons as well.

    As we all know that English communication is not widely practice in this country, but I was amazed that they were able to help me with my inquiries using an English language. Amazing!
