Chourakukan Café, Kyoto - This cafe used to be a businessman’s villa before it was remodeled. Since it was used as a reception hall by important people from both inside and outside the country, the beautiful fixtures such as chandeliers and stained glass windows have been kept. It’s near Yasaka Shrine, so visit this cafe together and you can experience both the Japanese and the Western sides of Kyoto.
Gion Tatsumi Bridge - Near the intersection between Shinbashi-dori and Shirakawa-minami-dori is a famous photo spot called “the most picturesque place in Gion.” The red-lacquered pillars and stone pavings next to the clear stream of the river creates a very Kyoto-like scenery with many people wearing a kimono. Especially in the spring, when the cherry blossoms bloom, it is a popular place to enjoy Kyoto’s beauty.
