    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
