[ 京都清水寺附近的大街小巷 ]
We call this a fattening trip because we basically “walk to eat” and “eat to walk”. The streets near the Kiyomizu-dera is full of interesting stores selling the specialties of this place. You may also see people dressed up like geisha (or real geisha) on these… (continue reading…)
走走停停。吃完走，走完吃。 聽起來很可怕吧… 不過這也算漫步京都大街小巷的一種方式，只有這樣的隨性才有可能發現意想不到的街景。清水寺附近的街道十分熱鬧，有美麗的復古街景，也有…
…. old streetss.
Sannen-zaka street scene.
We had our “brunch” at a nice Japanese restaurant on Sannen-zaka.
無緣的變身計畫. 本來都預約好了, 但是後來因為行程改 & 天氣又太冷只好作罷. 不過下次來京都一定要在春天或秋天的時候來, 一定要來穿這個一天.
We were going to rent these kimono for a day and walk around the Kyomizu-dera but then it was too cold anyway. Next time, I’d come in spring or autumn!
A store on the Kiyomizu-zaka that sells green tea flavour puff (with green tea ice-cream or just cream inside).
清水坂上的一間賣抹茶包子的店. 看來任何東西只要冠上”抹茶” 或 “櫻花”, 就很好賣…
A store on Kiyomizu-zaka that sells green tea bun! Seems like anything with “green tea” flavour or “sakura” (cherry blossom) flavour helps with the sales.
The extra-large version of green tea flavour Pocky sticks and Takoyaki flavour Pretz sticks.
No real goldfish needed anymore. This looks not bad.
Monk on Kiyomizu-zaka.
There are a lot of these stores that are “behind” stores. This one that sells the carton Totoro items is behind a chopstick store.
There are lots of little stores in this small alley and gardens. We stopped by a cafe by the Bougatei to have some afternoon tea.
A peaceful afternoon in the cafe.
Green tea cake and cream brule.
Streets are lined with stores selling cute little things.

Totoro’s theme here.
Happy words with lots of happy faces.
There are quite a few stores that dress you up as a geisha for you to walk around the streets in that outfit.
Yasaka-dori street scenes.
Local artists’ works.
You can buy one of these, write your wish on it and tie it on there.

Walking out of the temple. I wonder if they’re real geisha.
We were like stalkers.. lol. But they just look so photogenic!
