During summer, try taking a walk along the Kamo River between Sanjo and Shijo. There you will find a lot of balconies made of wood, called “Yuka”. These “Yuka” are as indicative as the warm weather that Kyoto’s summer has arrived. You will find that summer in Kyoto is very hot. Therefore Kyoto people love enjoying meals on the “Yuka” to escape the heat.
While enjoying your meal you will have an attractive view over the Kamo river and get a breath of fresh air. Many restaurants along the Kamo River are expensive, but I can bring you to a restaurant with a delicious dinner at a reasonable price.
