From my point of view 🙂
It was rained on my visit in Kyoto, I changed my plan in Kyoto on that day. Now “Nishiki Market” is too famous to talk about, I started to look for something in “Teramachi Kyogoku Shopping Arcade.”
I visited so many times this area but every time, the one is always there and some are new to the visitors. The old and new are mixed together and well balanced, I think. So it is fun to walk around!
Not only for the local people, this area is very kind to the tourists, too. Since it is next to the too famous “Nishiki Market,” why not visiting the arcades, too.
Some small unique temples are also around. It may be interesting to get in and see what are in there.
Thank you for reading my report. 🙂
