About Gion Ishibekoji alley
Ishibekoji Alley, it is where you went a little south of the Gionyasaka shrine. The entrance is so small that it is not noticeable. It is in a place that is really hard to find.
When you go into the alley, there are a few upscale restaurants, inns, cafes and more. It might be a way of enjoying a chic Kyoto to have the dish etc. while enjoying the taste of gion in the stone and the stone pavement. In addition, there is a Kodai temple in the place where you passed the Ishibekoji Alley, and I think that it is good to stroll along.
Ishibekoji Alley was also a place to shoot TV commercials for beer a little while ago. However, when visiting here, it is not good when it becomes a nuisance of people living, let’s go through quietly as written on the nameplate.
