This is a very pretty place, quaint and picturesque. The combination of water, trees and wooden buildings make it an ideal place for photography and many couples come here for romantic scenes.

As we strolled down this lane one evening in Gion, you could not help but gaze at the activity behind large picture windows of lighted teahouses and restaurants across the canal. Each portal depicted a tantalizing vignette: a hostess serving two businessmen; professionals socializing (after work?); a pair having an intimate, romantic dinner. Your imagination was free to create a backstory for each window scene.

When you imagine Kyoto in your head, this is what you see. It's a really cute and traditional area, which is definitely worth visiting and strolling around.

Stumbled upon this gorgeous street that has a canal and very beautiful landscape setting. Pretty autumn trees and dim-lit street lights that made this surrounding pretty cosy and surreal. my suggestion is to take a walk here in the evening while most of the OCHAYA restaurant are closed at 6pm.

If you have nothing else to do , it's a nice walk down this short part of the street. I hear it's beautiful in cherry blossom season, but was here in July, nothing really to write home about
