  • To Kiyomizudera shrine. Just so characteristic of tourist shops are lined up on both sides of the road, watching the fun. It is difficult to walk because it is crowded, crowded.

  • Bustling shopping street selling Japanese snacks, treats and souvenirs at pretty good price. Stop by here before or after visiting Kiyomizu-dera.
  • Love this street alot. Best if you can wear a kimono, it really takes you back to edo period. Ride the rickshaw and take lots of photo.
  • Best experienced with a Kimono/Yukata. It almost feels like a theme park with plenty of dining and shopping options available.
  • Interesting shops along the way.
  • Lots of nice places to check out
