Points of Interest

Along Komo River, cherry blossoms in spring, cosmoses in autumn are worth viewing. In summer, dining on the temporary terrace set up over along Kamo river is too good to miss. Enjoy some walking along Kamo River to the north. When you walk through the stream. you'll come to the quiet woods Tadasu-no- mori. and walk further down to Shimogamo -jinja Shrine.



For a break from walking, step in one of Kyoto cuisine restaurants around Shijo Bridge, Gion, Kiyamachi, and Pontocho area.

Outdoor dining in summer on the temporary terrace over Kamo River is really one of a kind.
