Neighbourhood
Shimogyo-ku
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 with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

What is this "sleep rope" than JunFung mentioned in their review?
Thank you for your message. It should be sleep "robe", I suppose. There are no ropes in the rooms. We prepare SAMUE, Japanese style relaxing robe for the guests.

Thank you for your inquiry. Futon is Japanese bedding that can be easily moved. So we will arrange to put them near electrical outlets for you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Best Regards,
