We were staying around this area. So this was our local daily walk. Extending from Kiyomizu Dera all the way to Maruyama park in Gion. Very interesting shops, restaurants, street vendors, cosplayers......... Spend some time here.

We visied this street after Kiyomizu-dera on our way to Maruyama park/Yasaka Shrine. It was a really nice street, it felt like walking through vintage Japan. Not recommended for kids with strollers.

Lovely restored neighbourhood, the Ninnen zaka and the Sannen - zaka, which means "TwoYear hill = Ni) and "Three Year hill = San). These 2 streets are lined with old wooden houses, traditional shops , teahouses and restaurants.

The street it self is also an attraction, a path uphill to Kiyomizudera set with traditional houses/stores along

This street is identical to the rest of Gion, it's just on a hill. If you are walking through Gion and/or seeing the pagoda, it is likely you will wind up here accidentally. There are some souvenir and food shops. If you want a nice picture, get there early in the morning when the streets are empty (but beware that... More

We walked these lanes after leaving Kiyomizudera Temple. As soon as we turned off the street from the temple onto Sannenzaka and then Ninenzaka it was much quieter. These stoned paved and stepped streets are lined with shops and buildings and are very scenic, traditional and typical of old Kyoto. If you can find Ne-Ne No Michi Street and then... More

This street, together with ninenzaka, are part of the attraction on the walk towards Kiyomizudera temple. They are crowded with tourist but worth the visit at any time of the day or early night. Its shops, food stalls, etc are really nice.

All the shops and people trying to get you to sample food etc outside them took away from the atmosphere we had expected here. Not the cheapest place to buy either.

This was our last stop in Kyoto. Glad we didn't miss it because it's just so lovely. The walk up is full of character and shops. The temple up above is charming with a view of Kyoto below. Very much worth the trip.
