Dined in for breakfast on the last day. The restaurant turned 360 degree circularly to provide summarised view of Kyoto. Other than that, food was just average and above reasonable price, only 1 choice for breakfast as a set menu.

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
