A must go place when visiting Kyoto! Early morning or late evening strolls can give you a feel of old Kyoto. But then you also need to go there when the alleys are flooded with domestic tourists in kimonos... what a sight!

Walking down the street is a nice way to understand what old Kyoto looked like, the path is filled with old buildings and shops. Many of the shops are just for tourists, with little authentic old style shops, but the walk up the path allows to reach a beautiful temple and shrine. It gets less crowded after 5pm, while before it is full of people walking up and down. Reccomended to have a look at the buildings and do some shopping while in Kyoto. You can walk the entire path in 20 minutes and then visit the temples. Take the time to look over Kyoto once you reach the top of the hill for a great view of the city which is hard to get anywhere else.

nice place to walk around is the weather is nice. many shops for you to explore and many things to eat as well. however, it is rather crowded with visitors both local and abroad. not many public spots that you can sit on and rest.

Loved this place! It's like a step back in time if you want to see a more traditional Japan vibe, definitely go there. We also saw geishas and there is a Studio Ghibli store really close.

Historical and traditional-looking Japanese buildings in Kyoto that have several places to buy souvenirs and grab a bite to eat. Some items can be overpriced due to it being a tourist spot, so be aware of prices for different items you may be interested in. Can get very crowded during peak season, as evidenced by my photo. Worth taking a trip to if you want to rent kimonos and walk around in them for a day or to take in the sites of the buildings.

Fun place to visit. Many people in traditional gesha costumes, for fun. Plenty of shopping and restaurants. Can be very crowded, but still fun to go to.

walk able distance from kiyomizu dera. nice touristy place. many shops beside the street. I met a fake geisha in here.

This place is bigger than it looks and has a couple of group rooms. They were super accommodating and nice even though we came in late and with three kids (and stroller in tow). Food was awesome (or maybe we were just very hungry - see previous sentence).

Nice old feel neighbourhood, we visited during the Hanatoro Festival and shops open til about 8.30pm. This place usually closes around 6pm, lucky us.

We're back for second time, different atmosphere last winter & this summer.....feel nice afternoon strolling w/ kyoto traditional look, even in summer still feel the cold wind

Beautiful (packed) traditional street. It's definitely the place where to spot tourists in traditional clothes and one of the best location to take beautiful pictures. We visited this street again in the early morning and it was absolutely empty, quite a nice treat to have it all for yourself, but also nice to see it busy and alive.

You can walk this place from the day to the night, in both cases always beautiful. Second time here in Kyoto and it is a must. Even you can visit this place with wheelchair, there is a rout free from steps.
