Citizen Life Style

While old-style customs remain amongst Kyoto's people and their lifestyles, it is also known for its intelligent and skilful harmonization of ancient and modern, and the acceptance of boldly innovative methods in everyday life. Whether it's the Shirakawa flower ladies, the Kamigamo vegetable sellers, or the excitement of Nishikikoji, known as the "Kitchen of the Capital", these are Kyoto lifestyles which are no different from those of long ago. Alternatively, visit bustling downtown Shijo-dori or Kiya-machi and Ponto-cho by night to see what big-city life is like.
