We areticketed to travel to Japan on 3-27-10 and will be in Tokyo thru 4/2. Was planning to spend a week in Kyoto from 4-2-through 4-9.
Have spent the entire day trying to locate accommodations under
$200 a night in Kyoto with no success. Have tried every website from JNTO, Expedia, hotels.com, Agora, Asiahotels.com, etc. Can anyone recommend a small well located hotel or even a guest house with western accommodations (preferably within walking distance from the JR station) that is not listed in websites and may have availability.? Also has anyone heard of or stayed at the Ark Hotel in Kyoto, the only place that had availability.... but will
have to cancel my Tokyo reservations, etc....what a mess!
I am exhausted, but would love to wake up tomorrow to find a
Also, are there Shinkasen that go straight from Narita to Kyoto or must we change trains in Tokyo?
Thanks a million for any suggestions you may have for me!
