Starting from Kyoto Station, take Bus D1 to visit the Kiyomizu-dera. Get off at Shimizu road and along the way, a must try will be this top rated beef bun from Kihachiro. It is steamed, and stuffed with flavorful beef filling.

After reaching Saga Arashiyama, I would direct you to visit Ginkaku Temple. Down the road toward the entrance of Nonomiya Shrine, this shop next to 三忠豆腐 is having some autumn and winter special taro sandwiches that are definitely recommended.

Coming to Dotonbori, there is no way you cannot spot the moving giant crab at Kani Douraku. So move on until you see a clown whom people chase after to take a shot. Next to it is a snack station where selling this scrumptious iced warabimochi skewer. Choose between matcha, chocolate or roasted soybean powder.
