Higashiyama District

Although Gion District is probably known as one of the most famous historical districts, I actually preferred the Higashiyama District instead. This district by far is one of the most memorable places that I have ever been to. I just absolutely loved how the streets, the homes and the shops have been so well preserved allowing subsequent generations to enjoy and appreciate the history/culture of the area.

A lot of the shops in the area sells local specialities (ex. tea, textiles, etc.) and there are ones that add a modern twist. I have had green tea ice cream many times over but I couldn’t help myself with the opportunity to have a cherry blossom/green tea twist presented itself. The taste was really unique as you had equal green tea and cherry blossoms complimenting each other perfectly.
