Nishi Chaya is much smaller than Higashi Chaya. There is one short street of old wooden buildings. We most enjoyed a children’s playground tucked off the main street. There was one flowering tree there and an old man sitting on a bench who was pleased...More

A little disappointed with the area. Smaller & lesser shops as compared to Higashi Chayagai district. Given a choice, will have explored other places.

This is the biggest and busiest of all the districts and this street is popular with the big bus loads of tourists. Shops, tea houses and food shops here. Very busy.

Very atmospheric especially early morning and at dusk when all the tour groups have gone. A Goodwill guide showed us around and we gleaned so much information from him we went back another two times so we could absorb the history

Structure, scope and interestingness are less compare to the other one opposite direction. One street with 2 rows old style tea house, one free admission museum at the corners end of the street.

A short 5 min walk from the Ninja temple, its a really short but nice street. At one end of it is a free museum. Couple of cafes and souvenir shops here. Pop by only if you are in the vicinity.

This "South Tea House" district is very small - just one short street. Higashi Chaya (East Teahouse) district is way more interesting and scenic. The only reason to visit this district is the Myoryuji (Ninja) Temple which is close by. There is a temple district...More

Certainly not as interesting or near original as the Higashichaya Street on the east side of the river. I would not recommend wasting your time visiting this location unless you have a lot of time to kill and are not interested in authentic old Japan....More
