For my second photo walk around Kyoto in January I took a stroll around Kawaramachi and Pontocho areas. Just across the river from Gion; the subject of my last Kyoto post.
I’ve included a map at the end of the post. Let’s take a look at some photos.
1. Shijo Dori
I spotted a lovely bit of old and new on Shijo Dori – a mustang, sporty toyota, old temple, and mcdonalds.
5. Kiya-machi dori
Blue icons show the main locations photographed
Pontocho and the surrounding area really is a beautiful spot for lanterns and traditional restaurants and bars.
