It is very nice to take a walk along Takasegawa. Although it is now a small river, it used to be as an important route of internal navigation between Kyoto and Osaka. This spot "Ichino Funairi" is near Oike Avenue and not far from Kyoto...More
We walked along here after being taken to lunch at a Maiko restaurant on the same street.
At the end the street we came upon a main road, Kawaramachioke, on which we also discovered a great Irish pub, all decorated for Halloween!

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
