Higashiyama Temple Area – Higashiyama Walking Course
Higashiyama Temple Area – Higashiyama Walking Course (Higashiyama Tera-machi – Higashiyama Yuhodo)
When you reach the top of Yasugawa Street, the peacefulness hangs in the air at the place nicknamed Higashiyama Temple Area. It is said that it began when Lord Kanamori Nagachika, who loved Kyoto, built the castle town. He constructed many temples on a slightly elevated hilly area in the eastern part of town. Not only are all of these historical temples, they are also an array of cultural assets as designated by the prefecture and the city.
Higashiyama Walk is a 3.5 kilometer walking course from Higashiyama Temple Area to Shiroyama Park.
