白川通(しらかわどおり)は、京都市の主要な南北の通りの一つ。東大路通よりさらに東にあり、北は宝ヶ池通から南は仁王門通(南禅寺前)まで。鴨川支流の白川沿いを通る。

今出川通(銀閣寺道)から北山通(修学院道)にかけてイチョウとケヤキの街路樹がある。沿道にはレストランやカフェ、ブティック、アンティークな店やエスニック料理店など北山通と並ぶファッションストリートとなっている。東鞍馬口通との交点である上終町(かみはてちょう)には京都造形芸術大学があり、京都大学の学生の下宿街でもあり若年者で賑わっている。また、北大路通以北から周辺には田畑も残っている。

宝ヶ池通より丸太町通との交点である東天王町までは4車線で、花園橋交差点から宝ヶ池駅付近で川端通を分岐するまでの約300mの区間は国道367号、北大路通 - 仁王門通間は京都市道182号蹴上高野線となっている。宝ヶ池駅南側にある叡山電鉄叡山本線との交差地点は自動車専用の立体交差が存在する。

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
