This mall is close to Kyoto Station and very spacious so it’s easy to spend the whole day here. My Taiwanese friend especially like that there is a supermarket and a UNIQLO store inside the mall. Many stores and restaurants in Kyoto close early, so I recommend buying some snacks and food to go here to take back to your hotel.
