Totally worth to visit and walk this street, it's full of small shops and restaurants, you will even be able to have free samples of some products and eat japanese creations (i remember a green tea cookie for example). For me walking is the best way to get to know a place, specially a different country and culture... In this walk maybe you will see some geishas, we did. Take your time, walk, watch and have a good time, it's an old place in the middle of a new era, the houses looks like new but maintaining the old Kioto japanese style, even some of the owners or sellers are dressed like the old times... Simply enjoy! This street is part of a walking tour in lonely planet, I did it and totally worth it, it's a long walk but you visit some beautiful places in the way.
