Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

A very nice hotel for vocation. This hotel locates at the shopping zone, close to famous sight seeing points, very easy to be found. Price is very attractive. Recommended if you want to take a rest in Kyoto.

Very average hotel with rooms smaller than the standard Kyoto rooms. The staff weren’t very friendly, we asked for recommendations and they just told us to go walk around in Gion. The beds are hard and the pillows are paper thin. We asked for more pillows and they said there
