Strolling around Higashiyama from quiet morning to bustling hour is an experience guaranteed to delight everyone. The people, traditional houses, architectures, temples, food… I enjoy my time when I was there, and staying there makes it even special.
Yasaka Pagoda within Higashiyama District.
Streets start to get crowded around 930am.
Arashiyama district. A very nice place with many attractions.
Street towards Ginkakuji (銀閣寺).
Ginshadan (Silver sand sea).
Kannonden (Silver Pavilion).
Philosopher’s Path (哲学の道). Highly recommended if you enjoy walking. You can either start from Nanzenji or Ginkakuji, it runs between them. I started from Nanzenji.
Higashiyama street. Great place to experience old Kyoto.
