Enjoy the scenery of a cobblestone path running along ancient town houses and the view of the Shirakawa River flowing along the road. It is the most aesthetic area in Gion to be designated as a National Important Preservation District for a Group of Traditional Buildings. Gion Shirakawa has an exceptional beauty in April when the cherry trees are in bloom.
