The hotel location was great, just next to Dojo train station, and next to a bus stop. And about 10 - 15 minutes walking to Kyoto JR Station.
The room we stayed was quite bid with its tatami bed and beautiful entrance. What we love...More
We stayed for two nights and three days and could easily have stayed longer because of the wonderfully helpful, courteous staff combined with the beautiful Zen-like ambience achieved through carefully chosen design and architectural features.

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.

You can catch a shuttle bus from Kyoto station. Buy your tic in advance to secure your seat. I think it takes one half to 2 hours to get to Kansai airport from Kyoto. JAPANESE public transport is very punctual and efficient. Your hotel will be best able to advise u on the best time to depart from Kyoto to Kansai airport.
