Higashiyama, literally 'east mountain', is the eastern part of central Kyoto where the city's old tradition and culture is best preserved. There are many narrow lanes lined with wooden buildings, traditional shops and historic spots, invoking a nostalgic feel in the seasonally changing environment. Kiyomizu Temple, Silver Pavilion and Philosopher's Path are among the most popular destinations in the district.

You will need at least a few days to visit must-see temples and shrines, pick up souvenirs, and taste your way through a variety of restaurants and food stalls. Higashiyama is the home of the city's traditional products such as ceramics, wigs, folding fans, ornamental hairpins and lanterns. The area is also well known as the central site for the Gion Festival held in July.

For the southern half of Higashiyama, going down from Kiyomizu-dera temple through San-nen-zaka (three years slope) and Ninin-zaka (two years slope) to Yasaka-jinja shrine provides you a very nice walk. You can also visit Ko-dai-ji temple and Entoku-in temple on the way, where you can enjoy the place with less toursists than other "must-see" places.
