Shijo Street is one of the busiest streets for the tourists in Kyoto that runs center of the city. The street itself is the commercial center which can easily be accessed to Yasaka Shrine, Gion, Kiyamachi street, and Karasuma street where you may be able to see some Maiko and Geishas down the street if you are lucky as there are normally few walking around the area.  There are also many good places to eat other than to see and shop in Shijo which are introduced in Picrumb.  We hope you enjoy your visit in one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Kyoto!
