    In the center of it all

    by

    Yes, Kyoto has a metro, but you’re going to have to learn how to use the bus . Now that that’s decided, why not stay at a hotel in the center of the shopping district surrounded by stores and restaurants. Welcome to Super Hotel Kyoto. It’s half an hour away from the train station (15 minutes on the bus, plus walking on either end) but those buses are frequent and run on time.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are very small, I don’t know that I’d recommend it for two people but the hotel is new, clean, cost effective and in a superb location. Breakfast is good, the free (short) international calling is great.

Super Hotel Kyoto Shijokawaramachi's Twin Room's Info

by Melanie_Putra

Hi Guys!
I need help... I looked at Super Hotel Kyoto Shijokawaramachi's website. Their rate is very good. I am interested in their Twin room. However, it states that their twin room actually has a semi-double bed and a sofa bed. I will be sharing room with a friend and we definitely won't be able to share a semi-double. I would like to know if the sofa bed can sleep an adult and what is it's size? Also, will it be made-up for use? I would have contacted the hotel but I can't find their e-mail contact in their English site. Has anyone stayed in their Twin room before?
Secondly, their English website mentions low and high season pricing but doesn't state when is low and high season... We would be traveling to Kyoto Dec 3-13th. Would anyone who read Japanese be able to assist and check their Japanese website for that info, please?

Thanks so much!
Mel

Super hotels don't provide turn down service. You have to do that yourself. It is a no frills hotel, meaning don't expect service. Each bed is meant for 1 adult. I see nothing about seasonal price changes, only weekends and national holidays - the price goes up.

Hi Fugu San,
We will be staying in ryokans as well as Pension! Altogether we will be in Kyoto for 10 nights and planning to move around - Kyoto Station, Kawaramachi area, perhaps Gion as well as in the Northwest for visiting Arashiyama and the Golden Temple. Just that for Kawaramachi this hotel is really good value...

Hi SfumatoPants,

I don't mind the no frills. Just concern that when they say twin and the photo shows the sofa bed being so small... It looks more for a child. As for the semi-double... my friend and I definitely won't want to share that bed. So one of us need to use the sofa bed if we decide to stay here. See this photo and you will see what I mean http://www.superhotel.co.jp/s_hotels/shijyo/page05.html
Or is it the angle of the photo being taken - showing the sofa bed to be much smaller due to it being further away?

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Staying in a Ryokan

by bkoon

Ryokan are accommodations, peculiar to Japan. And its the only one of its form in the world. Ryokan are an excellent accommodation as good as hotel. The structures are made of wood. They have a Western-style guest room but mainly composed of Japanese-style room.(Room with straw tatami mats) A Japanese-style room has various faces as a drawing room, living room and also a bed room. Ryokan is built in a traditional mode of Japanese architectual style and inside, you can see and feel the Japan's beautiful culture and tradition. You can enjoy Japanese dishes and culture also.

At the entrance of your room, you remove your shoes and enter your room.

In the evening, your room will be converted into a bedroom whereby futons will be laid on the tatami mat.

Difference from Western-style hotels, Ryokan has a unique customs. Ryokan staff (usualy called "Nakai" in Japan) will enter your room and serve you in these cases.
1. When you arrive at your room.
2. When you have dinner. (breakfast)
3. To make your bed (futon) after dinner.
4. To clean up your bed (futon) in the morning.

mmm... coffee!

by j-san about Soware

In case you didn't know it, Japan is in a coffee boom. But as much as I'm fond of Starbucks (there are now 5 of them just in central Kyoto! And also Tulley's... ) it's lovely to go somewhere with a little more character. You will find coffee houses all over Kyoto! See if you can find one that suits you!

When You Take a Long Train Trip

by shenandoah about Isetan's Department Store's basement supermarket

When you want a terrific bento box (boxed dinner) before leaving Kyoto Station to take on the train, go to the bottom floor of Isetan, located in the station. Western, sushi, sweets, yakiniku, kaiseki, Chinese, you name it...it's there and it's all mouthwatering! Be prepared for major crowds, but you'll come out with a delicious boxed treat for the train ride. I really like the boxes with kaiseki (elegantly prepared small traditional foods)...every bite is something different and there are quite a few counters (and budgets) to choose from. You can go less than $10 to $30 if you want.

Visiting historic temples and...

by kyotolover

Visiting historic temples and shrines are not the only activities while you are in Arashiyamaarea. Visit Iwatayama, or a monkey mountain, where you can see groups of Japanese monkeys living in natural environment. Also you can enjoy a splendid view of a city of Kyoto from the onbervatory room on the top of the mountain. You can enjoy short hiking as well.
You can actually feed peanuts to mokeys. They will come close to you and you just frindly hand over your peanuts to them. (You must buy mokey peanuts there.)

It's really made of real gold!

by konniemario

This is probably the 2nd most famous temple in Kyoto. The original building was constructed in the late 1300's as a retirement filla for Shgun Asikaga Yoshimitsu while son converted it into a temple. It was burnt into ashes in 1950 so in 1955 a full reconstruction was completed that exactly followed the original design. Only difference is that the gold foil covering was extended to the lower floors. It's actually much smaller than you would imagine but overall speaking, it's still worth a visit. Souvenir shops inside the temple complex got some nice stuffs, too!
