Hanamikoji Street, Kyoto

(3.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Stroll along Hanamikoji Street, Gion's geisha and maiko district, to find traditional teahouses (ochaya), wooden merchant houses, shops and high-end restaurants. The north side of the 1.4 km (0.9 mi) long street features modern pubs and bars, while the southern part is more traditional. Sneak into small side alleys to admire deep, narrow living spaces (machiya), with shops in the front that now serve as dining places. If you are lucky enough to encounter a geisha on her way to work, act with respect--admire her authentic beauty or take a photo with a subtle approach. Put Hanamikoji Street into our Kyoto trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Kyoto.

  • 花見小路的建築物大部分仍保留著傳統京都的特色, 很多日本或海外遊客會穿著和服在花見小路步行或拍照! 就算不穿和服, 就這樣站在花見小路上, 仍讓人覺得置身於古時的京都中! 旁邊就是河原町與八坂神社! 地點很方便!  more »
