River Terrace

in the evening

in the morning
This is a seasonal view of Kyoto. You see wooden floors standing in the river.
It is a terrace to enjoy dinner in the cool breezes of the evening. Their wooden floors, connected with restaurants, are built over the Kamo River in summer (from May 1 to September 30). The custom goes back to the Edo period (1603-1867).

This is part of Water World Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.

  2. Very pretty area. The river looks very low.

  3. I see that there is some space for rising water above the quai because everything is on piles. I also like the profiles of the roofs along the canal. Very nice glimp of your country.
