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 with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

We stayed 5 nights here and absolutely loved it. Our room was great, spacious and good facilities. Very clean. The location of this ryokan was perfect, it was quiet and peaceful but also easy access to everything we wanted to do - either by foot or 15mins walk to Kyoto station.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. Appreciated the large room (after Tokyo!) and the very comfortable King bed (our last before a week of futons on the Komano Kodo walk!) It is immaculately clean, great bathroom (with deep wooden bath), great toiletries, delightful staff. It

Its only a fairly small hotel on a little back street and not so easy to find - even our taxi driver seemed perplexed when we handed him instructions in Japanese. A note that it seems it has 2 buildings only 50 m apart that look the same - the main entrance is the second one.
