Story & Recommendation
Ichijo Street is a shopping street haunted by numerous yokai-monsters, just south of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine
Ichijo Shopping Street is located in northern Kyoto, close to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, and only a two-kilometer walk away from Kinkaku-ji Temple. But the easiest way to see the yokai-monsters is probably by taking the Randen tramline to the last station on the Kitano-Line, Kitano Hakubai-cho, and then walking toward the east from there for about six minutes. The shopping street of Taishogun was originally just a normal, traditional Japanese shopping street, but as traditional shopping streets in Japan are not doing that well lately, they decided to do something different. So now the shopping street is full of yokais, these Japanese monsters that are not necessarily evil, some of them are just mischievous.
