Kyoto : Kamiosaka-chō

京都府京都市中京区上大阪町

Kamiosaka division of Nakagyo ward is located in Kyoto downtown, by the Kamogawa 鴨川 river (“Duck River”). From May to September, restaurants and tea houses extend their decks, creating suspended tatami terraces, towards the river. Especially in summer, when the city is so hot, reaching a refreshing atmosphere by the river, is really welcome.
