Perfect location to get around town. Right across the street from the train station. Rooms were large and bathroom was spacious. Great vending machines on the 4th floor and coin laundry was available. The washing machine even dispensed detergent without having to put it in yourself. The staff spoke pretty good English. They had customized maps available to all the key tourist spots in Kyoto.

... out for me was called Womb :P Another thing i saw being sold here is imitation food, i.e. exact replicas of sushi, bowls of rice etc., but fake. Apparently after the end of the second world war there where hundreds of thousands of american soldiers in the country and food sellers needed an easy way of showing what was on the menu. It's actually really useful to this day, most of the restaurants and noodle bars will have a display of their various food options in the ...
