    Close to Kyoto station, commonly known as Shimabara area, entertainment of the shogunate official recognition "Kadoya (sumiya)". The sumptuous building is magnificent. It is made by using all the tricks possible Carpenter building that is listed in national important cultural properties.   As a result, photography is limited in part because cannot be introduced here. Shinsen-gumi also often used top-notch entertainment. The bloodshed was all over the place remains sword wounds. And they would have a room remain intact.   In the Edo period thought is is interesting to tour while slowly. Central wholesale markets are located nearby. Meals can be enjoyed, so take a look at visit.

    Great building with stately elegance with a history from the 1600s. Limited the public upstairs are very impressive. Enjoys Supreme said yosa Buson's later works are depicted on the walls, and marvelous atmosphere along the room's name in every guestroom, over just how much trouble she wore made. Two remains a sword wound Shinsen-gumi in the room of the mother of Pearl inlay. Black wall of the room (a sword was not permitted in the room why) mother of Pearl inlay and mother-of-Pearl inlay POPs has bluish color is based on that. Blackened wall of candles to the brightness of the day so many went in, so that soot was on the wall for. Well you know is used in very expensive candles was a corner room which had earned. It is strongly recommended that upstairs is a must, but for a limited time, limited hours, limited number of reservations to the.

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.
