We absolutely loved the coffee at Kurasu, being from Melbourne we are unashamedly coffee snobs and the coffee here is as good as a great coffee in Melbourne. Definitely seek it out if you are a coffee lover.

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.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
