Higashiyama District

Escape into nostalgia walking through the historic Higayshima District, a perfect representation of olden-day Kyoto.

Take a walk back into history in Kyoto's Higayshima District

Walk the stone-paved streets of one of Kyoto's best preserved historic districts and peek into the numerous shops that offer local goods, souvenirs and delicacies. A must-try is the matcha parfait: a matcha soft serve, red bean, matcha jelly and mochi delight. This district leads up to Kiyomizu-dera Buddhist temple, so we recommend exploring the streets as you make your way down from the temple.
