Lovely walk if done early in the morning. Still lovely to see girls in maiko/geisha outfit or kimono walking around this area. Can be quite slippery when wet. Be careful. There are little shops on the way. I was surprised to find a foreign exchange store in this area. Also romantic at dusk.

It is truly a joy to walk these streets. You can really feel that Japanese culture, you will find Geishas going and coming from all over the place. Shops with all kind of Japanese things. A very pleasant place.
