The Cube is a nice shopping mall on the underground level in front of Kyoto JR Station. You can well purchase your souvenirs here prior to leaving the area. It is very convenient to shop here and under all weather condition. Recommended.

Buy presents, eat well and enjoy the underground mall that is just next to the Kyoto Station. As soon as you get out of the subway, you can buy mochi and many goodies.

This is a shopping area in accessible from Kyoto Station. If it is raining or very hot you can shop and eat at great restaurants all inside. They have many small stores with clothes, food and accessories. There are stores you won't see in America...More

The Cube is another shopping/restaurant mall in Kyoto Station. This one is actually in and under the station. On the back side, or north side. You might be familiar with this side, because this where the hotel shuttle busses drop off and pick up. Lots...More
