Are these just for tourists?

Thank you for the comments!!

It looks hard to pull it and, fortunately, in the middle of Kyoto there are not slopes so much.

princess haiku,
Yes, it is only for tourist and we can see them in Tokyo.

It looks like Arahiyama to me.

Bingo!! You are right!! It is just in Arashiyama and just close to a famous restaurant Kiccho(吉兆) along the river.

Macky-san,

thanks for your visit and for sharing this link. I was surprised to know that you still have such rickshaws (even if only for tourists). I was curious to know what the bamboo(?) container was on the back of each rickshaw (except one) from which a green thread seems to be coming out.
Any idea what that could be?

BTW, we have rickshaws like that in Calcutta but the wheels are slightly different. They are larger. You can see a pic here:

In fact they are similar to old Japanese and Chinese rickshaws.
