  • Was that until about 10 years ago, students buy souvenirs, but here in a few years all atmosphere is transformed. Here's the country? Think about teems with people all over the world. Stores also violently turnover, stores like making foreigners increasingly came. Best Arcade and pleasant in winter and rainy days. Teramachi Street (but more relaxed) and Nishiki market in parallel, can shop there are many you can enjoy fast in a short period of time.

  • The area is very interesting and the neighborhood is of a good standard as well as shops and items for sale; do not want to dwell only on stores that, as interesting, you can still find in so many other areas of Kyoto (Teramachi, Pontocho and others) but I want to point out, even with photos, a small and cute Temple located in this district and that he impressed by its simplicity.
