Saga Toriimoto Preserved Street

Sagano is northwest of downtown Kyoto, and Toriimoto is located at the far end of Sagano. The conservation area of the Saga Toriimoto is about 600 meters along Atago Kaido Highway leading to Atago Shrine via Kiyotaki. There you find the approach to the Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple. The first torii gate of Atago Shrine stands at the back.

Along the street, there is a mixture of farmhouse-style buildings with thatched roofs and townhouse-style buildings with two-story, tiled roofs. Here, the old atmosphere of Sagano, which constitutes a rustic historical landscape outside of Kyoto, particularly well remains.
