We often travel to Kyoto to meet our business partners. During the business trip, we took this quiet night street photo nearby Kyoto Sannenzaka Slope (stone-paved path) close to Kiyomizu temple. (If you search “Kyoto Sannenzaka” on Google Maps, you will find the direction.) Sannenzaka means three years slope and the slope is made of lots of stone steps. There is a rumor that if you fall down at Sannenzaka something bad will happen on you within three years. So you need to be careful when you walk along Sannenzaka!!
Along Sannenzaka, you can find lots of small shops and restaurants that sell traditional items and cuisine. This path is a dating course for young people and a fantastic place to see Kyoto style (traditional wood-made) houses for all travelers. If you have a chance, please look for the path we took this photo. This is a very moody location!
