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.

This was far from what we expected which was a more relaxing experience. The check in staff was unfriendly, the reception was run down and smoke filled. The whole hotel is run down, looks more like a camp site, very tacky and feels unclean. The corridors dingy and dark. The

Wanted to try a ryokan, this wasn't really the traditional building we had expected. All the staff were very friendly and the location is ideal to explore the Nishiki market and surrounding area. The rooms are traditional but housed in a modern shell plus there are Onsen in the
