"Nene no Michi" or “Nene's Road” is a beautiful cobblestone road with a total length of about 250 meters that passes from Maruyama Park towards Kiyomizu-dera Temple on the west side of Kodai-ji Temple. Nene was the female companion of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, one of the first men to unite Japan under his rule. After his death she moved to this area and the road became know as Nene no Michi, Nene's path, after her death. It is a popular attraction throughout the year and as a place to stroll and see a traditional Kyoto. The area is filled with famous temples, beautiful cafes, impressive classic ryokan, and much more. A visit to Nene's Road fulfills all those images of Kyoto and gives you a chance to explore the history of Kyoto and Japan. Be sure to check out the “Stone Wall Path” which is a narrow alley accessible from Nene's road.
