We had a terrific meal in Kanga-an. The food was delicious and it was beautifully presented. It was a very special setting and we rounded the evening off with a drink in the secret bar. Excellent!

A different sort of vegetarian experience. Food was well presented but service was slow. Staff were good in explaining the various types of food serve. Try to get a room facing the inner garden.

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
