Sannei-zaka Slope・ District of Sannen-zaka Slope (Preservation Districts for Groups of Historic Buildings)
The gentle slope with stone pavement connecting Yasaka and Kiyomizu-dera is called Sannei-zaka. This area is classified as National Preservation Districts for Groups of Historic Buildings. The souvenir shops selling Kiyomizu ware and Nishijin brocade, etc. are lining up one after another and the street becomes the atmospheric cityscape. There is a superstition that if someone falls down on the stone street, he will die within three years, and that is the reason why this place is called Sannen-zaka. It is a outstanding walking trail for sightseeing after Ninnen-zaka, Nene no Michi and Ishibe-koji.
