Profile: Shimogyo Ward

Profile: Shimogyo Ward

Shimogyo is in downtown Kyoto, and includes Kyoto station as well as the iconic 131-meter Kyoto Tower. Scale the structure to be rewarded by stunning panoramic views of downtown Kyoto and the surrounding mountains of Higashiyama and Arashiyama from its observation deck, 100 meters above ground level.

For a spot of retail therapy, head 2.5 km north to Shijō Kawaramachi, a hectic intersection that’s home to Kyoto’s most renowned shops. Browse designer clothing at the elegant Takashimaya department store, before descending to the gleaming basement food hall to sample some mouthwatering gourmet cuisine.
