Sound is greatly missed the atmosphere of understanding and, sorry about that. However, I don't think is said to have in hand from the noisy but no taxi even refused any Carey service station have heavy luggage, climb the Hill till the very want to stay in this place. I brought the suitcase was stupid. And 2, so please forgive.

  • 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.
