Near Zenko-ji, from  old times, there has been a shopping street in the precincts of Zenko-ji temple.  This street is called ‘Naka-mise’ — literally ‘the shops inside the temple ground.’

There are some nice rows of shops and restaurants even outside Nakamise street — you can just relax and have a comfortable walk there.

Here let me show you some of them.
