  • While it may be photo worthy and nice to visit while on your trip to Kyoto, it’s only worth it during the early morning or evening when the crowds have thinned out. If you can time your visit either before or after the Chinese invasion of bus package tourists (pre Covid and probably post Covid) you won’t be stuck in meandering horde.
  • Such a beautiful area with rich historical significance and cultural heritage. In the day or at night, this is a great area to visit.
