当地向导江南游子

5/5
Reviewed on 6 Dec, 2017

In fact, Zouyuan is a Geisha area in Kyoto, which can now be regarded as the most representative area in Kyoto. In the daytime, you can find restaurants and teahouses in the 7th century. Many tourists like to relax here and walk on the road. You can also see Geisha in a hurry. Maybe they will pass by with you. But the most vivid time here is in the evening, every evening, there will be a lantern emitting a weak light, you can see a light in the back of the paper window emitting a soft light, and even you can see that during the internship geisha are working in a hurry. Zouyuan is well known for its annual summer festival. Every time Zongyuan Festival comes, many people will play the most beautiful Zongyuan music with flutes, gongs and drums in the luxurious decorated floats. Watching them pass through the street will attract many tourists to watch it here, which makes it very lively. Some statistics show that there are nearly 1 million people going to watch it every year. In the Memoirs of movie Geisha in Zouyuan Geisha Street, there was a scene that was actually a north-south street in the middle of Zouyuan Street, because it maintained the ancient style of Kyoto, so it was very famous.

This is one of the popular scenic spots in Kyoto. In the early days, it was a Geisha gathering area in Kyoto. It was also a traditional busy block in Kyoto. It was a bit similar to Jiufen Street in Taiwan. You can come here after two years and three years. Although the buildings here are relatively old, they are full of antique charm. There are tea rooms, snack shops selling antique early tastes, and shops renting Japanese style clothes. There are many tricyclists who wear more "exposed" clothes on this street, who are diligently and diligently soliciting customers, and there are also some small temples to visit. Many of them are fox fairy temples for marriage, but because they can't understand Japanese, they dare not worship or make promises, because they don't know if they will be like some temples in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, they have to return "thanks". You don't want to leave any "hands and tails" or "foreshadows" in order to avoid strange accidents. Ha-ha, ghost movies are too much to watch. I think all the way is slate road. Because we wear Japanese-style clothes and Japanese footwear, it's a bit difficult to walk and slow to walk. But it's also because of this dress, so it really has a different flavor. Here you can see a large area of old wooden houses with ancient charm, which should have a history of 32 years. There are many snack shops with high prices. There is also a "Yilan Ramen" branch here. Friends who are too lazy to stand in line at Dalton Home in Osaka can choose to eat in this one. It tastes exactly the same.
