Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

The most terrible inn in Kyoto. Not friendly to foreign guests. 欧米人の友人をご案内した時の話。1泊1人2.5万払って泊ったのですが、周りは1万円弱で泊まっている人。貸切風呂もこの値段のコースで1日限定4組との説明だったのに現地では安いプランの人でもタダで何組も入っている。なんでも直前にシステムが変わったとかいう説明。その後、夕食時、同室の欧米人とレストランで待ち合わせていたけど、レストランスタッフは中韓等外人さん多いからわからない、金髪外人?しらんがな、という反応。結局館内探し回った挙句レストランに戻ると同じスタッフがお連れ様お待ちですよ、と。本人曰く30分以上待ちぼうけていたとの話。結果、彼女は日本のことが大嫌いになって帰っていきました。帰国後日本旅行したがる友人等を全力で引き留めているとのことです。悲しい限りです。
