    No matter summer is good place to have hotel shopping, shops (East Ocean Pavilion/YKY Pig exhaust, etc) are more afraid of eating Hotel step on mines. Queue area than comfortable stores a lot of General Ma Lu bian, East, cool in summer and warm.

    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.

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.
