Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.

Couldn't fault the hotel, wonderful service, beautiful decor great restaurants. This is in a quiet area so if you are wanting to be closer to the busier area in downtown Kyoto this may not be the best spot for you. Having said that the courtesy bus runs every 20 minutes to and

I chose this hotel as I thought was in a busy area - i was mistaken - yes it is near the gardens and it was very quiet and a bit out of the way - the hotel offers a shuttle bus to the closest train station - it takes a good hour to walk into town (where the main shopping area

How do I get from Osaka Kansai Airport to the hotel? Bus or train available?
Yes, first hit the airport Tourist Information Center. They speak English there ... and can get you to the right train pretty quickly. Once at Kyoto station, I always just take a taxi to the hotel. It’s fast and not very expensive. One tip: take along a printout of the hotel’s home page with their name and address in kanji. Or bookmark your Fodor’s with their page to (Fodor’s has the kanji for every destination they review!) Just show it to the taxi driver and you’ll be away in a flash.

Does this shuttle goes to Kyoto station?
No, it only goes to Karasuma Oike subway station. From Kyoto station you would need to take the Karasuma subway line bound for Kokusai Kaikan and get off at Karasuma Oike. When we first arrived in Kyoto with our luggage, we got a taxi to the hotel, but after that we used the subway all the time. It is easy to work out and if you have any problems, someone will always help you. Get a subway map and work out the best route to get around. We bought a prepaid rail pass, which we just topped up whenever necessary.
