Roaming the Streets of Higashiyama District

The Higashiyama District is one of Kyoto’s best preserved historic districts. You will come across lots of wooden buildings, narrow streets, very small old-fashioned shops, cafes and restaurants. The narrow streets leading to the Kiyomizu-dera are also lined with shops selling Japanese sweets and confectioneries, pickles, handicrafts, pottery and many other souvenirs. I spent almost a day wandering and browsing in the little streets here. The whole place was packed with tourists and pilgrims.
