Kyoto Colors - Streets

 Shinbashi Street, Gion

If I were to recommend one particular district to stroll around in Kyoto, I would recommend the Shinbashi - Shirakawa Minami area in the Gion district. It is, of course, a well-known tourist spot and historic conservation area, but what I like about it is that it has retained its vibrancy as a dining and entertainment area.

And unlike some other overwhelmingly touristy areas which are crammed full of souvenir shops, the place is rather quiet and you can still find glimpses of everyday life in Kyoto there.
