  • Kiyomizu-dera of the back of Omotesando, a road shop hideaway there, foreigners are also popular. There are views that well into the narrow alley next to the small temple, and, everywhere you look.

  • It may be also attractive here is that many people are. Well walking hear the words of the various countries, while it is good stuff. Buri a year back when I visited, but Western countries and China in addition to this time from Indonesia, Thailand, who often seemed.

  • Omotesando Hills through the visit and "Kiyomizudera Temple" is always crowded with great people. Time consuming than I thought, nonambulatory like I thought, "Kiyomizudera Temple". So both sides in Kyoto still was pretty well-known Kyoto souvenirs such as pickles and Yatsuhashi otabe, the-Kyoto! I like gifts and dinners.

  • 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
