More about Hotel Unizo Kyoto

Excellent location in the tourist heart of Kyoto.

by worldkiwi about Sun Hotel, Kyoto.

The Sun Hotel is located on Kawaramachi Dori, one of the main tourist corridors in Kyoto. The Hankyu Railway terminal for Kyoto is about 600m south of the hotel. Rooms are small, but adequate for the traveller. This hotel is very popular with business people and travellers and is well priced for a hotel in Japan, so you probably have to book well in advance, specially in spring (cherry blossom season). The bathrooms are very small though. The location is great. You can walk to Gion (the Geisha district), or shop in the vast covered arcades to the west.

Where to park a rental car

by drbus

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to park a rental car in Kyoto. We will be staying in a hostel for 5 nights. I would love to park the car once and leave it. But I don't want to pay $50 US to do it. Any advise will help us decide on a car rental or Rail Pass.

Re: Where to park a rental car

It will be impossible for you to park your car for $50 for 5 days. You will be very fortunate if you can park it for $50 per day in my opinion.

Here is the homepage for Kyoto City Parking Corp.
From what I can gather from my somewhat limited Japanese they have parking available for between 1400yen and 3800yen for a 24 hour period depending on the location. The main problem is availability since parking is a luxury anywhere in Japan and especially in a city such as Kyoto.

I doubt if the Japanese below will be legible on Virtual Tourist but I'll paste it anyway....

1.?@24 hours for 3800 yen.
8am ~ 3pm for 1500yen


2.?@24 hours for 3000yen


3.?@24 hours for 1400yen


4.?@4 hours for 1200yen
bicycle for 480yen

*Automobile travel is extremely expensive in Japan. Parking, gasoline, highway tolls, etc are all much higher than most other countries.

Since Kyoto is essentially a city for tourists they have provided reletively inexpensive public transportation options. Here is a website which might be helpful.

Yoshikawa Inn

by Andrei222 about Yoshikawa Inn

Haruko and husband Kiotaka san took us by taxi to a restaurant/inn for traditional Kyoto cuisine dinner. Our waitress took us on a tour of the gorgeous Enshuu style landscape garden behind the restaurant. We were impressed by the Tempura Counter where we sat on comfortable 'bar stools' (that is what they reminded me of). In addition to the four of us, four other diners sat around a curving bar, facing the cook on the other side--he was amazing to watch, moving swiftly and efficiently to fry many varieties of seafood in a vat of oil, continually placing the items on our plates--he was like a dancer with all his graceful movements, a very happy man in his work. During the course of almost 2 hours, I ate a large amount of so many different tempura foods that I cannot remember what half of it was--I just know that I liked it. Meanwhile, a woman in yukata made sure we had a good supply of plum wine and saki at our places. I tried saki for the first time and liked it--served at body temperature, strong but good as long as I took small sips; it left a good aftertaste. Lee preferred the very sweet plum wine. For those who don't know, a yukata is a sort of informal kimono or highly decorative bathrobe, tied with an obi (cloth belt) at the waist. Men have their own yukata, generally less fancy than the ones women wear. Tempura

The Golden Pavillion

by Beachcomber

This has a temple which has Gold leaf all around it. The gardens here are very lush and well established and it is obvious that they are centurys old. The temple with it's phoenix on the top looks really like you are in Japan a century from now as you look at it and the mountains behind.
This is deffinetly a must see if you are in Kyoto. Although you can't go inside the temple walking around it and admiring the gardens is just as nice.
This is really one of the best cultural icons in Kyoto and is really magnificent.

The search for Geishas

by ClareyD

Whilst we were unsuccessful in locating any Geishas in early evening in Gion, we were quite surprised when we went down Pontocho alley (a small alleyway lined with teahouses and traditional restaurants)around 6-7pm due to the amount of Geisha/Maiko we saw moving from one teahouse to another within the space of about 10-15 mins however the difficult thing is taking a picture. The only warning sign you get is the clip clop of the wooden clogs so you need to listen very carefully, they move very fast and so quickly the photo opportunity has gone. To get a picture you need to be both patient and lucky, quite crazily it almost feels like you are a member of the paparazzi.
