    Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
    Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
    and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
    tourists and local business travelers, making it a
    competitive location for ever-new commercial
    structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
    trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.

    Hello. You can keep your things in your cabin during staying. And you don't have to check out every morning. We just keep your room keys. Also We can keep your luggage at reception desk. Thank you. FIRST CABIN Kyoto

    there are two type of rooms, the smaller ones are the width of bed, larger ones you can store as much luggage in there. however there are no door locks so you will need to lock your cases when you are out.
