What a beautiful street, a lot of fun to walk around and a perfect taste of Japan and Kyoto. Many small stores with a beautiful Japanese architecture, offering a wide array of products and Japanese fo...
We stayed in a ryokan in the Gion area so we got the opportunity to walk around here at night as well. It's a lovely walk and best of all, rid of all the hoards of tourists. If you're going to spot ...
There is a small road called Hualien Road. What a nice name is, but it is also crowded. When we walked, we deviated from the main road. The shops on the small roads next to it did not open the door. It is more suitable for us. The strong wind and the wind can only be realized in no one's place. It is not easy to find a few quiet alleys in such a crowded garden. There are small flower paths and vehicles. There are staff members who command traffic safety, although they are very crowded, but they are very orderly.
Gion Garden sees the path, which is the most prosperous street in Japan. When it comes to Kyoto, it will naturally associate with Gion, and it is also the location of the movie "Memoirs of Geisha". Both rows are Japanese architecture. A lot of young ladies wearing kimonos can't tell whether they are Japanese or tourists. They inadvertently see geisha walking on the raft holding a cosmetic bag, don't look back, and look back at the four seats.
Hanamijiu is the most famous flower street in Kyoto. It preserves the buildings of the Edo period. There are high-end restaurants on both sides of the street, and geisha is often seen. Maybe there won't be many surprises during the day, but once you get into the night, the whole street will change instantly. If you are lucky enough to encounter a rain, the whole street will reflect the light and shadow.
The lights here are like stars. We walked in the streets of light and shadow with small umbrellas. The pedestrians mottled and hurriedly walked like a symphony of the night, and the quietness of the night lingered in the sound of the rain.
The first time I came to Japan, I didn't choose Tokyo, which is a prosperous fashion trend. I chose Kyoto, which I must go to in the early days. Located in the Kansai region of Japan, Kyoto has been the capital of Japan for the millennium from the Heian dynasty to the Meiji Restoration. It is the true place of Japanese culture and the soul of Yamato.
I am afraid that no city has so many ancient temples and shrines as Kyoto, and the amazing density of ancient buildings has made her one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. You can experience the secular customs of Kyoto by crossing the path with the costumed geisha or watching a kabuki performance. Kyotos youthful vibrancy can be felt in a large number of bookstores, coffee shops, tea houses and specialty shops on the streets.
Fushimi Inari Taisha: The head office of the 30,000-odd Inari Shrine in Japan is one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto.
Hachiman Shrine: It is one of the most popular shrines in the incense.
Kamogawa: The best place in Kamogawa's scenery is the area of the Yasukuni Shrine, the forest of the Yasukuni Shrine, which enjoys the reputation of Kyoto's lungs and is a world heritage.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple: One of the national treasures of Japan, the oldest temple in Kyoto.
Three years and two years : Various hand-to-hand rituals, the first choice for specialty shops.
: The first choice for being close to nature.
[Most tickets to Kyoto are charged; Kyoto trips can be purchased for one-day coupons; recommended stay in Japanese-style homestay]
Hanamikoji is located in the Gion district of Kyoto and is well known for its old streets. Geisha still live here today, and as night falls, tourists have a good chance of encountering one of Japan's living national treasures flitting past. The area has remained a stylish place ever since the Edo period, and it is one of the few places where geisha can still be seen.
