SpotKamogawa Noryo-yuka terraces

One way to relax in the old capital during the warmer months is to simply hang out at the Kamogawa Noryo-yuka terraces on the banks of the north - south flowing Kamo River. Terraces are usually set up between Nijo-Dori Street and Gojo-Dori Street in a practice said to have originated in the Edo-era (1603-1867) when a wealthy merchant positioned stools on the riverbank near Gojo to entertain his guests. The terraces today are operated by restaurants serving both food and drink and are open daily between May 1st and September 30th.
