Kyoto's popular Sannei-zaka is more widely known as Sannen-zaka. There is a legend to how this path got it`s name. It was named after Nene, the wife of Toyotomi Hideyoshi who walked to Kiyomizu-dera Temple to pray for the birth of a child. A number of the roads leading up to Kiyomizu-dera Temple are popular tourist attractions themselves and are part of the wonderful attractions on the east side of Kyoto. The area is designated as a “traditional building preservation” in the city of Kyoto. The charred cedar walls of the buildings and classic roof tiles make this an iconic spot to see and feel traditional Kyoto and Japan. There are wonderful shops, cafes, and restaurants to discover along the pathway.
