The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City Center
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Doshisha's main campus is just north of the Imperial Palace Park, along Imadegawa Street. The campus features a number of red brick buildings that would feel right at home at a college in New England. (The university was founded in the late 19th century by an Amherst College graduate from Japan.) The older buildings are wonderful examples of Meiji period architecture, but the university has done a nice job blending newer buildings to compliment the older ones. The chapel is a particularly noteworthy example. We were lucky enough to stop by when someone was playing the organ. From a tourist standpoint, it is a nice place to walk through if you are in the neighborhood. The Imperial Palace is just south of campus and Shokokuji Temple is just northeast of campus. As a college neighborhood, there are a number of places to grab a quick meal.

This University locates one street north from the Kyoto Imperial Palace. After long walk, we found a nice cafeteria which is open to the general public. It is easy to find since it locates in a building facing the busy Karasuma Street, It is refreshing to have nice lunch among young students and the old at heart. It is very reasonably priced including a choice of soft drink, We had a daily menu which is grilled chicken today and a Hamburg Steak. We enjoyed lunch recalling our university days.
