    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
