  • Lovely neighborhood we discovered on the way to Kiyomizu-dera, the Love Charms temple. We meet sparse crowds as we walked up to the temple early in the morning. Great to see the neighborhood wake up. Scenic and enjoyable.
  • Although it can be very crowded, the atmosphere is still quiet and calm. A very nice neighborhood and you get to find some souvenirs for your loved ones here
  • I can walk around here day after day... imagine the samurai used waking on these alley... amazing place. Night time just as beautiful.
  • This entire area gets extremely crowded even on rainy days, but it's worth it for bites to eat while you walk and enjoy the view.
  • Very scenic place. Must walk past after Kiyomizu-dera trip.
