Take A Break
Kuroneko Tourist Information is full of great hospitality. Help yourselves with some tea that is brewed daily. Just follow the sign that is pointed to it. It’s a great idea to just sit back for a while before you head back out to tour the city. Perhaps take a moment and use the free Wi-Fi to check your email, update your Facebook, or research for places to go in the area.

Any time while they are open (10am - 6pm), you can drop off your luggage, and they will keep it for you until you come back the same day. The cost is ¥500 per luggage, or for items fit in a box shown on the sign. Many people drop off their luggage before heading to tour around Kiyomizu-dera Temple. It’s a good idea to not carry a lot of things with you while you tour the area as the pathway is full of hills. Also it’s great to keep in mind that you could actually send luggage to your next destination or to the airport.

Such a convenient place for a tourist information center! Many tourists stop by to take a rest and gather information about the area. All the staff here are very friendly and helpful! I stop by here when I'm around the area to just take a break from walking and gather information about current events. Locals use the parcel services for shipping even for refrigerated or frozen shipments.
