Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

The most terrible inn in Kyoto. Not friendly to foreign guests.
From Kyoto station to Arashiyama the ride was about 30” and the taxi cost was about 3300 yen. Split three ways we felt it was a deal.
We were greeted warmly by several staff members as soon as the taxi stopped. Then our luggage was...More
The worst hot spring experience ever in Japan ..high end price but low end quality (I paid JPY 80,000 for three ppl for a night including two meals)... The dining is really bad...I think which is even worser than any Japanese restaurant on the street......More

I don't believe you will be able to find breast pump accessory within walking distance of the hotel or Akashiyama. Even the convenient store next door sells only food and daily essentials only. If in Kyoto, you should be able to find the parts you need in any department stores's baby department. I was also breast feeding when we travelled with our little one who was less than two at the time. One thing we found is Japan is so baby and mother friendly that you can find nursing room available in any major pubic areas. Hope this helps.
