I would like to give it a 3.5 stars but its not quite "Great", so I gave it 3 stars. The hotel is clean, room is spacious, like most ryokan, it has a hot spring bath area. However, somehow, it gave me a run down...More

This traditional style hotel is older, but spotlessly clean, in an outstanding location. The staff are friendly, and our room was very comfortable. Our first experience in a traditional ryokan-style, so we were a little clumsy: not knowing the correct protocol for footwear, bedding made...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
