Sakura Cross Hotel Kyoto Kiyomizudera
Japanese-style business hotel
😠 Worst Hotel for me (as a tourist) at Japan. Because: 1. This place don’t have any workers in reception, and if you have check in problems, you must complain and wait (in my experience it takes around 1 hour) 2. There is no free water, microwave and luggage storage. 3. Because of no luggage storage,...

Kobe Beef Steak Mouriya Gion
Steak house
😐 Very good meat, but for the price you pay I would expect more of the experience. The place feels very touristy and inauthentic. When we went I think about 90% were tourists. Also the overall quality of the dishes was mediocre and not very creative. The staff was very nice and polite, nothing to com...

Kurasu Kyoto Stand
Coffee shop
👍👍 Hidden gem of a coffee shop! Definitely the best option to get a delicious coffee or macha-flavored drink around the Kyoto station area. They also sell some cookies and snacks. Only downside is its own popularity. It's a small shop so it can get busy and crowded really fast.
