  • Tons of shops. Highly accessible. Similar to other shopping areas. If you like shopping, you'll like this place.  more »
  • En route to Kyoto station from the underground Porta Porta underground town square had appeared gardens. Been entitled "Kyoto Garden located between Sora and human" and if you look closely at the garden and the Kyoto kitayama Cedar garden. Splendor garden looking up to the sky from a square Tower into the eye, just looking sky spectacle of kitayama cedar and the Tower seemed telling.

  • Station over the heads of Bill's modern buildings, underground shopping street. Person's level dropped a bit during the trip, but for the first time go a little confusing layout of the underground?

  • A huge array of shops both culinary and eating all underground. A great place to escape the heat.
  • They have some restaurants with English menus there. If you are really struggling with the language barrier there is a market here where you can see the food and purchase it to go. Many options for ramen in the restaurant area and good shopping too. They play American rap music in the Porta which I thought was a nice reminder of home.
  • Underground shopping & food court right next to Kyoto train station. Very convenient n plenty of selection
  • Nice to escape the crowds and heat above ground, easy access to subway, decent food court.
  • You think you you will just stay for 1 hour max but you just discover that you take the last train haha

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
