Toyoko Inn Shijyo-Karasuma is located just above Hankyu Karasuma station, and this area is the very center of Kyoto. The street, on which the hotel is standing, is Shijyo Street, a famous shopping street, and Shinkyogoku shopping arcade is just 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. Since this hotel is very popular, you should book in advance.

In the middle of two subway stations. Close to hotel have a bus stop. Walking to shopping area is a bit far. But still considered walking distance. Hotel provides free breakfast in the morning. Not many choices, but taste quite ok. Enough for you to fill up your stomach and save money. My uncle, auntie and my parents like the... More

Been there on Dec'15. Location is between stations but in walking distance with nice weather in Kyoto. Convenience store is next to. Breakfast was fine. Room was not that small. Just there was no smoking box inside the building. Must come out to freezing smoking outside.

The young staff at the reception are the friendliest and most cheery. The tall young lady with the ready smile and bouncy step and the young man with the glasses stand-out in being thoughtful. Thank you staff for making my stay pleasant.

I chose Toyoko Inn as my first accommodation in Kyoto. It's a reliable and well located hotel. The room was a suitable size for the money and the breakfast was fine. It was a decent starting point for my Kyoto adventure but if I was to go again I'd most likely get an apartment or ryokan near Gion or Kyoto... More

This was my 2nd stay in this hotel. The location is just excellent! Walking distance to Nishiki Market, Kamo River, Gion etc. As it is located at the junction of Shijo-Karasuma, many buses, subway & train stations are available there! Toyoko Inn standard is very consistent! Fast check-in and check-out! Friendly staffs and nice breakfast.

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighborhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
