Lonely Planet review

On the 5th to 8th floors of the BAL building, right downtown, this is one of Kyoto’s best bookshops. The 7th floor has a good selection of English books and a smaller selection of books in other European languages. It also stocks English-language manga, magazines, Lonely Planet travel guides, and Japanese-language textbooks and reference books. There is an excellent cafe on the top floor which has a great view over Kyoto to the Higashiyama mountains. You can get light meals here as well as drinks.
