Let’s Stroll Around Nishijin & Enjoy the Traditional Kyoto Townscape!
[Local College Students Tell All!] There is an air of nostalgia remaining in Nishijin. The area is most famous for their Nishijin-ori textiles, and the small alleyways and old Japanese houses observed throughout the district create a traditional atmosphere. Many of the traditional Kyo-machiya (traditional wooden Kyoto-style houses) have been converted into interesting shops! We had local college students take an actual stroll through this charming area. Here are some of the interesting spots they found along their walk!
