WALKING FROM HIGASHIYAMA TO GION


19th MARCH 2017 ~ It had been one long day for us so it was time to hunt for food for dinner. There would be another long walk to take from the temple to get the halal restaurant. Thanks to the pleasant temperature, we continued wandering along the streets of Higashiyama to Gion.


The place was more laid back, there were not many people on the walkway (thank God for that) and even the streets were busy. (Perhaps it was a Sunday). There were still people wearing kimonos.
































Gion is actually a famous district in Kyoto and is known for its traditional wooden houses and Geisha. Too bad we did not have time to explore the place but that should be a valid reason for me to make a comeback one fine day.
