Teramachi, Kyoto
(3.5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nishiki in the vicinity. The atmosphere is better off. Peace of mind. Women's wear on the inside of the corners the market thrust is a great place to go as moms reside there

  • A small detour liked us very much in the evening. The huge number of shops, restaurants and even a climbing hall invite you to linger. You will find almost everything, everything the heart desires... and more ;-) Impressive and very impressive!
