Tours and Tickets

The area
Neighbourhood: Pontocho
Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.

Hidetsugu and his family’s grave
Jul 2020 • Solo
Hidetsugu is a nephew of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and ascended a high political position. But later he was ordered to suicide by Hideyoshi and his family members were also executed. Among them, there were also children. The graves of this tragic family remain here in Zuisenji. The place the temple stands is a very crowded area, but inside is very calm. Once you enter the premises, you feel as if you became a time traveler. It is generous that the temple doesn’t charge the entrance fee.
