This streets are really picturesque in Kyoto. Although this area is quite crowded it’s a must-see, full of life, shops and people with the Edo feeling that only Kyoto preserves so well.

This is an old district that you can stroll around in the morning before the crowd comes. It is quite pleasant and lovely to photograph. I took many photos in the morning when the shops have not yet opened. I did not visit it again...More

This area of Kyoto is temple central, one after another and all of them amazing. There are numerous kimono rental shops and apparently they are doing well, since there are an abundance of kimono clad young women everywhere. Shops and cafes abound, it’s a very...More

If you want to see a part of the "Old Kyoto" thats a place to go to - much better than the crowded Gion. The best time from my perspective was around 20:00 - all the shops are closed, the area is peaceful and you...More

The streets of Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka lead up to Kiyomizudera, which is a must-see in itself. Even for those who have no intention of heading up to Kiyomizudera, it's always worth taking a few hours just to walk along these attractive streets. The path leads...More

Lined with classic wooden shops, cafes and restaurants, this street winds upwards from Gion towards Kiyomizudera temple. Although very busy, there are many interesting items for sale as well as the usual tourist kitsch.

Weekdays are better choice. Both roads would lead to Kiyomizu-dera. Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka are beautiful in the morning. I prefer to walk on the Ninenzaka steps though, the calm and quiet morning simply enticing and a... More
