I stayed here for five nights, and enjoyed the tomb-like silence, the nice staff, and the interesting shops on the avenue. The Japanese breakfasts were fantastic, and would be even better if they eliminated the frenetic jazz that plays constantly and substituted quiet Japanese music....More

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
