Ishibe Alley, Kyoto

(4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Step back to early 20th-century Japan at Ishibe Alley, a historic cobblestone street that has maintained a traditional atmosphere from the Taisho period (1912-1926). Original wooden houses line the street, where many operate as teahouses, restaurants, and salons. As you walk you can hear the muffled interaction of people through the shoji screens. Due to its old-fashioned aesthetic, it has become a popular destination for filming in movies. At night, numerous lanterns elegantly illuminate the street. Hotels operate in the area for people who wish to stay longer. Our Kyoto itinerary planner makes visiting Ishibe Alley and other Kyoto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 在二年坂往袛園方向的路行,中間有一條不起眼的小巷,拐進去就是石塀小路,不留心很容易錯過,茶寮都路里 高台寺店在裡邊。  more »
  • Is the place of Yasaka Shrine and then walk West Shijo-Dori and immediately feel the ancient city of Kyoto. Even after a short visit to the kennin-ji Temple, walking. Shopping and dining close to the shops and Kyoto sweets where.
