Hello,
ive never been to these hotels but i know the areas very well.
Either hotel is fine as regular public transport covers these areas well. There is more to see and do near nijo, so i'd probably recommend the Hotel Chatelet Inn.

if you need more help don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for the reply. Our choice was Hotel Chatelet too but unfortunately, it was fully-booked on certain day we wanted ! So, that leave us Hotel Brighton. The good thing is that it provides shuttle service to the subway nearest to it .... not too bad !! For our next trip to Japan, we'll make sure that we make reservation earlier .... lesson learnt !

Thanks to all VTT members who have given me very useful informaitons and also to those useful homepages that I have read.

Ooops !!!! Re: Re: Hotel Brighton or Hotel Chatelet ?

Ooops !!!! I meant VT members .... sorry ! My mind must have been thinking about VTT this morning ! Went cycling around the countryside a few days ago.... did it while the weather was good.... "Make hay while the sun shines ".

Travel Tips for Kyoto

KYOTO: Gardens
Coming from a non-appreciator of gardens in general, I must admit I was impressed with Japanese gardens. They are not just a result of planting trees at random + removing the weed. They are planned architecture, and maybe yes, just maybe even art.You can find very nice gardens around most historic buildings.

Independant

by j-san about Independant

A few meters west of Teramachi/Sanjo. Go downstairs. I would have like it more in my University days, I think. Rather large bar downstairs, with no actual bar to sit at, but big garden-like tables. Also have snacks like salsa chips etc.

Kaiten-Zushi

by BorderHopper

If you don't feel like spending big bucks in a more traditional style Sushi restaurant look for a restaurant which displays a mini conveyor belt with plastic sushi in the front window. These places are called Kaiten Zushi and are much cheaper than a formal sushi restaurant. After your seated just sit back and enjoy the view of the sushi chefs preparing plates to be placed on the automated conveyor belt which makes its round through the restaurant.

Rokuonji Temple (Kinkakuji Temple/Golden Pavilion)

by crazyguitar

One of the most beautiful temples in Kyoto. Don´t miss its pond and the Golden Pavilion.
Originally a villa of the Saionji family on the hills of Kitayama, but offered to the third Shogun of the Ashikaga Shogunate, Yoshimitsu Ashikaga in 1397. After his death, the villa was converted into Rokuonji Temple.

The fox...

by cheesecake17


The entrance gates to temples and shrines are most often guarded by a pair of protector deities
At Oinari Shrines, the gates are guarded by a pair of foxes. In many cases, these gate protectors are garbed in red or painted red, for their job is to block the path to evil.
A pair of stone fox statues stand on guard at the entry to each of the site's shrines and sub-shrines.

By the 11th century, Inari becomes intricately associated with the fox. In Japan, the fox is a legendary creature with supernatural powers for doing both good and evil. Able to transform into human shape (typically that of a bewitching woman), and to hear and see all secrets of humankind..A key often seen in the mouth of a fox statue is for the rice granary.

According to Kasama Inari Shrine
In ancient Shinto, the "mountain kami" was believed to descend from its winter residence in the mountain to become the "paddy field kami" in the spring, residing there during the subsequent agricultural season. Following the fall harvest, the deity would return once again to its winter home in the mountains in its role as the "mountain kami."

All this probably took place at the same time that foxes appeared each season. As such, the fox naturally became known as the messenger of Inari

Japanese folktale...says...A black fox is good luck, a white fox calamity; three foxes together portend disaster.
