I traveled to Kyoto alone, and I stayed for 3 nights during the last week of November, peak foliage-viewing time. I chose Kawashima because of its price, location in downtown Kyoto, and the proximity to some of the sightseeing spots I wanted to see (Gion,...More

The Ryokan is located close to the main road in Kyoto and the printed instructions provided to the taxi driver meant it was found easily.

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
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
