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 is located next to Shin-kyogoku's shopping arcade, this road was wide, lined up a lot of stores, so many tourists areas.

  • It's one of the many interconnected shopping streets in the area....You can't miss it....If you are going to nishiki market street, you will probably come across teramachi...  more »
  • Japanese love arcades. The Teramachi arcades are also the change to the modern. So, unfortunately some old shops have disappeared, replaced by shops in modern design. This is of course due to the time, but it is but the most exotic/Japanese but too bad, the normal tourist is looking for. However, many shops exist where you can buy arts and crafts, stationery, textiles, gift articles and souvenirs wonderfully. The prices are cheap and high-priced.
