It's so strange reviewing a mall in Kyoto (considering how many excellent sites there are to see in this city), but this mall is really far too useful for travelers to miss.

The aeon mall had a few interesting stores. There was a store selling good quality yukatas. A big arcade for gaming. Local and imported clothing brands and such. The people who shop here are mostly Japanese. Not a bad place if you want to spend...More

Okay, it was raining for three days straight when we were in Kyoto. So.. shopping malls are pretty good alternative to keep my kid entertained. Aeon mall has one floor full of arcade and other play area for kids. Pretty fun.

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 bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
