Lots of souvenir shops and crowds of people. Difficult to get in and out by car. Not really much to see.

The variety of merchandise and food sold in the different shops make up for the steep walk up towards the Kiyomizu-Dera temple. Try everything or at least a green tea ice cream. It is good! Definitely an exciting street to get lost and immerse in all things Japanese.

Kyoto's most intense tourism strip is what it is. That said, there are some gems hidden in this area. Kiyomizu pottery is quite famous and plentiful here. You can sample local sweets, enjoy green tea, get lost in the crowd. There are many eye-catching souvenirs. It's a fun area, and no trip to Kyoto is complete without a visit here.

This street leads up to Kiyomizu-dera and is simply a street filled with souvenir shops. It's extremely touristy and very crowded. However, if you want a souvenir that is fairly standard (not high quality hand crafted items), don't mind paying tourist prices and don't want to spend alot of time searching for them, then this is an ok option.

You'll probably go here anyway just walking from A to B.
