Walk to the traditional sights of Gion Street and to temples along the base of the mountain.
Century old temples and shrines, one even covered in gold leaf and each with its own story to tell dot the landscape to punctuate the city's historical importance. Almost 2000 years ago the emperor made this city his residence and during the 17th century Nijo Castle became the residence of the first Shogun. Both not to be missed sites.
