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

The onsen at the hotel is indeed gender separated. clothing is not allowed, nor are tattoos. Did not see any monitoring, but I must say that the hotel is pretty strict about customers following onsen ethics/rules.
