A nice stop with a good selection of Japanese and western food. Non alcoholic beverages are included. Good selection of coffee. Excellent dessert buffet. Can get pretty busy even at 1PM. Nor a maximum sitting limit of an hour for lunch buffet.

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
