We fancied pizza after over 2 weeks in Japan eating the local food. We really enjoyed the meal, no problem with service and a minimal wait. The views are worthwhile especially in the evening. They even had Grappa, that was a surprise.

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
