Such an amazing shopping experience. My favourite shopping visit out of the whole trip. So many shops and all unique and all the staff I encountered were so lovely and friendly. I could spend days there, one day wouldn't be enough to see everything.

The Teramachi Street shops are outdoor, but covered from the elements. This makes it a great option with inclement weather. Additionally, virtually all the shops are of a Japanese origin, so the items are unique and local. If you're looking for unique items for souvenirs to bring back home, do not miss this street....there are many dozens of great shops.

Our Hotel was located in this area and it was the most convenient location one could ask for. The shops were good and there are plenty of stores selling all kinds of stuff.

Has some beautiful small temples located in the area

So much to see. If you are looking for any kind of true Japanese souvenirs this is a place to go. I found some great treasures from Kimmidolls to a beautiful silk Japanese robe. Had lunch in a very traditional Japanese restaurant and had the pork katsu. Loved everything.
Side note: There is history hidden in and around all the little shops. Plus look up towards the sky. Every once you will see an amazing piece of stained class art.

Teramachi is a covered street, the same as Nishiki but it is wider and therefore feels a lot less crowded, even though there was lots of people. There are galleries, food, clothes, whatever you want it is here. I really liked this area - worth visiting.

I love this place. Teramachi Dori (Street) actually runs for miles north south in Kyoto, but the main shopping street is between Shijo and Sanjo Dori. This part is covered, and makes a relatively cool and dry place for exploring the many shopping delights of Kyoto. Teramachi (temple town) was the site of most of Kyoto's temple after a major urban redevelopment in the 16th century, and the temples are still there, now standing back between the shops. This gives you a real sense of serenity and history amidst the hustle and bustle of modern Kyoto.

Being quite a long street, there is a really big range of shops, including fairly cheap touristy souvenir shops, high and low price fashion, traditional and modern clothes and vintage kimonos. There are also cafes and restaurants, and it is joined near the Sanjo end by Nishiki market, with all of its culinary treats.

I really came to love this street over an extended stay in Kyoto and came back many times. I was fortunate to be here for the Hanagasa (flower hat) Junkō parade, part of the Giin Matsuri festival which runs through here after coming up Shijo from Gion. Very beautiful and quite magical.

If you are looking for all types of shopping then this is a great area. T street shopping arcade itself is fully covered as is Nishiki Market so no issues if it’s raining. Plenty of other shopping on the main streets that run parallel to T street too. Lots of galleries and artist shops in surrounding street. All up something for everyone here. Well worth a visit.

Most of the shops give you branded items in this street. All types of products available including the kimonos. If you are a brand freak, then this is the place for you to go.
