Introducing Downtown Kyoto

If you don’t give a hoot about temples, shrines and gardens, you might never leave Downtown Kyoto (which is, naturally, smack in the middle of the city). It has just about everything you need: an incredible variety of accommodation, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and entertainment options. And, yes, there are even a few small temples, shrines and museums, plus the famed Nishiki Market.
