Walking in Higashiyama, Kyoto

The Higashiyama area near Kiyomizu-dera is certainly an interesting place to walk around. Lots of shops with souvenir things but also original crafts and foods. Lovely old buildings and 98% pedestrian streets making it awesome to walk around. If you get to Kiyomizu-dera and need something to do, walk along the streets and head north to Gion, you wont regret. 
This lovely lady was posing for some pictures, she was very elegant.

It definitely has an old traditional feel to it.

Even though it has a traditional feel it has some modern signs...
