It is a must to walk through the charming streets. It is one of the most beautiful place in Kyoto and picturesque too! The streets are lined with old wooden houses, traditional shops and restaurants in Japanese style building. I love this place!

walk through the old streets of kyoto--incredibly well-preserved-- there are nearby places to sit or get something to eat or drink
