In June it usually rains in Kyoto, as it’s the rainy season, but if you’re in Kyoto during this time, you’re probably wondering which places to hit when it rains here in the ancient capital. But you can find many places in Kyoto that are just as great when it rains, like museums, whisky distilleries, and shopping streets. At these places, you can not only have fun, but you also don’t have to worry about getting wet! Rain does mean that it’s not easy making up an itinerary for a fun day in Kyoto, but these 5 spots are sure to make it easier for you!
Nishiki Market is a narrow arcaded shopping street lined with vendors selling all kinds of yummy stuff on both sides – and you don’t need an umbrella! This is a famous spot that everyone coming to Kyoto is going to visit at least once.
In an old building on the intersection of Sanjo and Teramachi, you can find the non-verbal humorous theater group GEAR, which is very famous in Kyoto. Because there are no lines in the play, you don’t have to worry about the language barrier.
Kyoto Aquarium is located a 15-minute walk from Kyoto Station, and it’s a great place for the whole family. The exciting dolphin shows, penguin area, and the huge fish tank are all very exciting, especially for children.
Kyoto Station is a place almost everyone coming to Kyoto will go to, as it’s the entrance to this city. In the station, you can also find the department store Isetan, and if you take a look at its basement floors, you can find all kinds of yummy things to eat. But at the department store, you can also find trendy clothes and other things to satisfy your shopping needs!
