This was my second stay at Yamatoya Honten and I love it. They have 24 hour lobby with no curfew which is great if you're planning on partying around Dotonburi and Namba. The staff are courteous and helpful and many speak English. There's internet in the lobby and a huge shared bath. Easy to find on the edge of Dotonburi and 5 mins walk from either Namba or Nipponbashi stations. A++ for the price around $75 a night per person with cheaper rates for longer stays.

The shops are similar to the States -- clothes, specialty stores, shoe stores, etc. I also saw a Gap and a Starbucks on the way to our bus stop. After walking around until about 7:30, we decided to grab dinner back at the bus station before taking the train back to Shioya.
We wondered why Kyoto was so crowded (aside from the 1.5 million people who already live ...
