Day 13: Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka Stairs, Kyoto

Day 13: Kiyomizudera, Kyoto

An amazing and beautiful steps of Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka in Kyoto.  This steps have been preserved as historic streets to maintain their originality and traditional look including those magnificent appearance of the Japanese style houses along the way as well.

We then stopped by at one of eel or unagi restaurant along the way.  What a great pick!!!  We ordered an unagi set menu with rice.  The eel was so tender and cooked to perfection.  It tastes absolutely delicious and rich in flavour.  Even the rice itself got a really nice sauce mixed into it.  Superb lunch.

Unagi lunch box 3,600yen

This couple is not the real Geisha, they are just doing the photo shoot.  Apparently, there are a few studios in Kyoto that provide this service and while you are wearing the Kimono, they will give you some time to walk a round the town too.

Stay tuned for the next blog still in Japan:
