This area of Kyoto blends into so many different streets, but all of them have something worthwhile to offer. Be prepared for crowds, but you can always find a quiet area or corner to have a snack to recharge for your continued walking. Each shop has something unique to sell, and the architecture and adornments of the buildings are all interesting.

We've made this walk many times over the years and enjoy the trip. The walkway is unique in itself and leads to a wonderful temple. There are many shops and restaurants some of which are just souvenirs while others have unique crafts. We've only ever had snacks along the route - rice crackers, ice cream and tea - but there are many options. If it is really crowded I'd suggest staying away. If it is just busy then it's a great walk.

I love this street, together with Ninenzaka and Sanenzaka. There's so much to see and so much to taste. It is a good place to appreciate the culture of Kyoto all in the one place. It is also full of photoworthy places as they are streets which has preserved from eras ago. Everything gives you a taste of the old Japan. Will come back again next time.

This street is right off of Sannenzaka street and leads to Kiyomizu-dera Temple. It is busy with many people and not very wide, however, it is very much worth the trip! You can find all types of street food and sweets along this road. There are stores selling handmade pottery and souvenirs, incense and ice cream. So much to snack on. The shops line both sides of the street and the road leads right up to the temple. When we were done at the temple we walked back down the road to a place for lunch called Nekomata Noodle Shop. The food was just amazing and very reasonably priced!

One must walk up this street which is the only way led to Kiyomizu Temple. You will never miss this street since there are tons of people are using the same path. Plenty of shop ranging from art and crafts, kimono rentals, delicacies, desserts, restaurants, souvenirs, mostly Kyoto based products. Easily spent 30-60mins walking into these shops on this 600-800m long street.
