Hard to go wrong in a Starbucks. While it was incredibly busy on a weekday evening we got through the line and served quickly. There is seating both on the ground level, and some more upstairs. This particular Starbucks was well maintained and the staff were friendly and understood my order perfectly. No complaints

Back in the USA Starbucks is pretty overrated! However, I quickly warmed up to the idea of visiting the one in Kyoto after a local who I met in Asakusa insisted that "Kyoto Starbucks is a MUST see" and I must admit I later concurred! This Starbucks was indeed a site to see. It overlooks the famous river, it's multi-leveled,... More

Starbucks is Starbucks and this store was no different. The nice thing is most of the time you can guarantee the same consistency as other Starbucks you may have visited. It was a cold day so we both enjoyed a hot cocoa. The store was quite busy but we were able to find a seat upstairs. Friendly staff and a... More

Coffee is expensive in Japan and of varying quality so an international chain has its place, you know what to get and deliver they do! Very good friendly staff decent coffee at a reasonable price no more no less, don't knock it!

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
