The Higashiyama district of Kyoto is the city’s richest area for sightseeing.
The southern end of Kyoto’s Higashiyama district is my favorite area of the city for a walk.
Southern Higashiyama is Kyoto’s most popular sightseeing district, and with good reason: it’s packed with first-rate sights.
Gion is Kyoto’s traditional entertainment district. It is the realm of geisha and hostesses.
Tucked along the base of Kyoto’s western Arashiyama Mountains, you’ll find one of Kyoto’s most charming sightseeing districts.
