Outside Shopping Mall Teramachi Street

Teramachi Street is a superb place to walk through and being able to actually enjoy the walk in this otherwise busy city. It’s a modern outdoor shopping mall with a roof that spans a full kilometer. It is also double-laned for the biggest part so you can go through one side and come back the other for what will likely be your best shopping/walk experience in Kyoto. The street is closed to traffic and nicely tiled, you almost couldn’t tell you are outside. The shops are plenty and diverse, from food to clothes to souvenirs to trinkets and arcades.
