We stayed here for 2 nights only because there was really nothing else in the area that could accomodate us for 3 nights. The owners are really nice except they don't speak much english so between our limited Japanese and their limited English, it did prove quite difficult to find out what we could do during our stay.

My friends and I stayed there for 1 night, we were received by the owners who were very friendly, the room was more spacious than what we imagined and looked very traditional, the shared bathroom was clean and I absolutlely enjoyed the ofuro. We went on a really low season so we were the only guests that day.

Having planned our trip to Kyoto in the middle of a National Holiday, we booked the Wajimaya in desperation. Our first night was at the clean, modern and friendly Matsubaya (across the street funny enough!). The rate was slightly less here and was the only double room we could find araound.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
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.
