Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

There was a pullout ironing board in my room but no iron - you'll have to ask reception or call housekeeping, and they will send one up to you.

There is a service for luggage delivery called Black Cat. There are other similar services but we used Black Cat. They pick up your luggage and send it to your destination. Very reliable and useful.
