#119 of 442 in Sightseeing in Kyoto
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • Complete Electricity Equipment Store
  • A good shop
  • Good maintenance. The best long-term guarantee. You work hard.

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.
