Since Kyoto is now swamped with tourists (yes I know, technically I am one as well) this area has really become overcrowded. It is very difficult to call a walk through these streets nice anymore. I started out early when most of the shops were...More

Fun to see all the adults & children dressing up in kimono. Closes down around 6 - even the places to eat so go earlier. If you need a souvenir you'll find it there.

Loved the Sannaenzaka Ninezaka Slopes (winding steep laneways/slopes), full of little shops, with some great different, local to the area wares, whether it be food and other things. Really lovely day out to be had here. If you have the luxury of some time to...More

Another tourists' place in Kyoto for tourists. Usual souvenirs/local food stuffs. But still interesting to just walk around. After all, you never know what to expect. Just enjoy the visit and soak in the atmosphere.

Many shops line the street heading up to the temple...too many. Go early to avoid heavy crowds in the afternoon. There are many better shrines in Kyoto to visit.

Don't be shy - many of the stores with prepared foods have samples. Just don't eat a bunch of samples and leave. Extraordinarily rude to Kyotans. We found pickled mango, lightly pickled cucumber, wasabi peanuts, shrimp and onion rice cake on a stick, and a...More

I recommend to combine Kiyomizu-dera, south Higashiyama (Sannen-zaka and Ninen-zaka slopes), Gion, Pontocho, with Fushimi Inari and Sanjusangendo (the artistic highlight of Kyoto) if you have a full day, and with... More

Sorry, I cannot help you. We were for a very limited time in Japan and just bought shinkansen tickets at the train stations. We never had problem to get seats despite we always purchased "on the edge". The frequency and... More
