Horrible ! You will die not more than two years ??

Ninenzaka and Sannenzak

when it comes to Kyoto, What do you imagine ? The beautiful Japanese building comes to my mind. The area of Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka is one of the most beautiful in Kyoto. A stroll down the narrow road leading to and from the Kiyomizudera temple will lead to Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka. On these famous streets which is lined with old wooden houses, you can enjoy traditional shops and restaurants in Japanese style buildings. The shops offer lots of traditional items, from incense to fans to woven goods. These streets have been preserved to keep the stone, and very beautiful even on rainy day cause buildings are reflected in the wet stone.  If you like Japanese retro atmosphere, I recommend you this place definitely. One more thing! “Ninen” means “2 years” in Japanese and “zaka” means “slope” in Japanese. Tradition says that you will die not more than two years if you fall down on the Ninenzaka street. The Sannenzaka is in the same case. But don’t worry about it. It just means that you must be very careful when you walk on a steep slope.
