Kyoto - Southern Higashiyama (Chapter)
This is the Southern Higashiyama chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kyoto guidebook.
Southern Higashiyama is Kyoto’s richest area for sightseeing. Thick with temples, shrines, museums and traditional shops, it’s great to explore on foot, with some pedestrian-only walkways plus parks and expansive temple grounds.
