"Taxi drivers, bicycle riders,..." Street Safety and Cautions Tip by j-san
Street Safety and Cautions, Kyoto: 5 reviews and 4 photos
Taxi drivers, bicycle riders, little old ladies... roads in Kyoto are very narrow, footpaths often non-existent. No one walks on the 'left-side', so keep your eyes and ears open and remember- there is no logic to it. If you move to the left, the person riding behind you will most likely move to the left too. If you move to the right, they'll move to the right. Strangely this never happened to me when I was in a "crowded" place like Delhi or Tokyo. Someone exasperated once said about Kyotoiites "They want to make you stop!!!". Sometimes I wonder...
This is by the western side of the Imperial Palace park. A bicycle will pass you (within inches) every few seconds.
