There are a lot of variety e.g. 100 yen shop, lively souvenir shop, brand shops, etc. If you like, you can enjoy Dotonbori river cruising.

Kaoru was pleasant but overall uninformative providing us little information on sites we visited. She also didn't explain that we were going on trains to sites so we left our Japan rail pass at our apartment...She did have a pleasant demeanor and led us through sites once we arrived there..
Kaoru is a sweet and gentle person with much knowledge to share about Japan, customs, and Kyoto in particular. She speaks good English and is very pleasant to be with. My family took a custom tour with Kaoru and she started our day by explaining where we would go. As the day progressed, and my family over-stayed our time on some portions of the tour, Kaoru graciously worked with us to adapt the time remaining to the highest priority scenic venues. Kaoru used her expert knowledge to tailor our tour to the subjects we were interested in: architecture, gardens, and customs. All together we very much enjoyed Kaoru’s guidance and sharing of knowledge of the history and culture of Japan. The Japanese garden at the imperial palace is perhaps the finest Japanese garden we’ve ever toured. One particularly unique aspect of Kaoru’s tour were all of the transportation accommodations we exploited to move around Kyoto, including trains, subways, buses, trams and even a taxi. This helped us travel efficiently between venues and was a worthy experience in and of its self.
Kaoru-San is so sweet and accommodating. She picked us up on time as we got off the train in Kyoto. We have been in constant contact prior to meeting up and Kaoru-San did her best to arrange to have all my must-see attractions squeezed into one day. She's super knowledgeable and very friendly. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you again. You made our day in Kyoto memorable!!
We had a great time with Kaoru, who was very informative and showed us around Kyoto's highlights. Very personal and attentive and a warm personality.
I booked the guide for a friend of mine and his family. They told me she was a wonderful guide.
