Get a feel of old Japan meandering around this beautiful area with old shophouses, a peaceful canal lined with cobblestones and willow trees. During the day it gets busy, with kids feeding the swans and ice cream sellers hawking the most delicious Momo (peach) ice cream you have ever tasted. Each little shop, beautifully presented, selling quaint souveneirs, traditional foods and snacks, and handicrafts. Photo opportunities at every turn - my one warning would be to go early, even the day before if you can, and get a ticket for the canal boat ride as they sell out fast and we missed out. We wandered around here all day and it was bliss! At night the area quietens down but is beautifully lit, so another great opportunity for night time photography.
