First impressions when I arrived at Higashiyama after dropping my luggage off at the hotel. . .BEAUTIFUL! The area was so quiet with few people walking around, you can clearly see the mountains with a canal running through. The location was very close to Heian Shrine so you won’t miss the big tori gate on the street. The Heian Shrine Torii is one of Japan’s biggest! There is also a zoo nearby! Also the weather was quite cold with sunny spells!! It’s definitely worth visiting.
