Southern Hidashiyama, Kyoto

Southern Hidagishiyama is just a few minutes’ walk (or bike) from downtown Kyoto and can completely transport you into more natural and spiritual settings, through a plethora of Buddhist temples and contemplative walking paths.

After a beautifully misty day of sightseeing, we check out the narrow streets of Ponte-cho, lanterns restaurants and bars as far as the eye can see down its corridors.image
