Sightseeing in Kyoto 3

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 3 November 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Another touristy street scene from near Kiyomizu Dera. I really like the atmosphere of this area, although it does get very busy!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

The mix of traditional and modern is really visually appealing. It feels full of life, a nice vibe. Superb

A precious moment that the seizure of expression of these four women who watch amazed those in kimono!

Too bad that is touristy 'cause that's the way Japan should look.

Beautiful. I like this little street with the stairs at the end to go to Kyomizu temple.
