I am staying in a smaller western style hotel (The Hotel Monterey Kyoto)...I thought I had an email address(email@example.com) but I cannot get a response. I need walking instructions from the subway station of Karasuma-Oike to the hotel. I know it is very close but I will be arriving relatively late and am a first time visitor> I would also like to request a nonsmoking room etc. but cant get thru. I hesitate to call because of my lack of japanese.......Can anyone in Japan advise ? Thank you,thank you!
