awesome place to walk and eat! highly recommend a takoyaki shop called kari kari hakase, their takoyaki ball is super soft inside and crispy outside!

love this place so much ....... things that sell in here are so cheap .......a great place to find seasonal foods and Kyoto specialties, such as Japanese sweets, pickles, dried seafood and sushi.
