二年坂 (Ninenzaka) & 三年坂 (Sannenzaka)

ADD TO MY TRIP

In direct translation, Ninenzaka means 'two year hill' and Sannenzaka means 'three year hill.' There is a myth that if you fall down in Sannenzaka, you will die(!) in three years. (Que fuerte!) Maybe for that reason, people take special care not to fall down, but it's also very hard to fall down as it's always crowded with people.
They are both hills connected to numerous shrines and temples, but the path itself is very famous for souvenir shops, traditional tea shops, and restaurants.
