    Profile: Shimogyo Ward

    Shimogyo is in downtown Kyoto, and includes Kyoto station as well as the iconic 131-meter Kyoto Tower. Scale the structure to be rewarded by stunning panoramic views of downtown Kyoto and the surrounding mountains of Higashiyama and Arashiyama from its observation deck, 100 meters above ground level.

    For a spot of retail therapy, head 2.5 km north to Shijō Kawaramachi, a hectic intersection that’s home to Kyoto’s most renowned shops. Browse designer clothing at the elegant Takashimaya department store, before descending to the gleaming basement food hall to sample some mouthwatering gourmet cuisine.

      The property was similar to a bed and breakfast arrangement, but with a traditional Japanese approach. Shoji doors, tatami flooring, small outdoor garden were very pleasing to take in. The proprietors (Mario and Yoshiko) were wonderful hosts. Mario's English was very good and offered great recommendations for area sites. He also drove us to one site quite a distance from their property and drove us to the train station on our last morning (no charge)! That was wonderful. Mario offered his bicycle to me to ride the neighborhood. I preferred walking the neat/clean/safe neighborhood, including short walks to two very nice temples and local restaurants (okonomiyaki and yakitori)!

      Gallery Nozawa Inn is more than a ryokan -- it is a real Japanese home with two cordial people taking care of it and of its guests. If you want to experience traditional Japan, this is where you want to be. The house is around a 100 years old with authentic elements, lots of wood, sliding doors, and traditional Japanese rooms with tatami mats. At the same time, it has great modern elements, such as modern private toilets. The bath/shower is shared but there are only two guest rooms in the house, so will not really notice it. Breakfasts are delicious. I highly recommend staying at Gallery Nozawa Inn!

      Amazing. Traditional inn with modern amenities. Toilet and sink in room and ofuro bath share. Only 2 rooms upstairs. Large and light. Family run, kind & very helpful. Location great. 30 minute walk from station through temple grounds. It is in the old entertainment district from 1600s. Older than Gion. Very few tourists. Lots of old buildings and temples. Breakfast was fantastic, Japanese style. Wife is great cook. Mr Yamada speaks English and willingly assists with advice. Highly recommended.
