#203 of 784 in Things to do in Kyoto
Teramachi Street is a historical street in Kyoto, Japan, running north-south. The area extending from Shijō Street to somewhat above Sanjō Street is an arcade containing an assortment of shops and services, both traditional and modern. The street's name literally means "Temple Town", similar to English "Templeton", and reflects the large number of temples moved there during Toyotomi Hideyoshi's remodeling of Kyoto in the 16th century.

    It might be the great shopping in Kyoto. I simply couldn't see the special in comparing with the rest of Japan. I didn't buy anything from here.  more »

    Many small shops and places to eat, some expensive and some very reasonable. The famous "NISHIKI" marketplace is located there.  more »

    It is a shopping street parallel to Shin-kyogoku Street. In the shinkyogoku and Nishiki market connected to the arcade is a shopping district perfect for rainy days. It is a lot of tourists, so full of lively shopping streets.

    A decent-sized Edion, several floors, divided by genre. However, the choice is limited, particularly in the computer section. It is big enough to buy something standard but not big enough if you're shopping for something special. For example, it has only one desktop Mac and two latest Mac laptops.

    Good maintenance. The best long-term guarantee. You work hard.

    So far less as the shop is great. I wonder if I'm equipped with audio system.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
