    To describe Shiraume in a few words - affectionate reception, excellent service, great food (breakfast and dinner), warmhearted assistance (thank you very much Tomoko Okuda and team), authentic rooms, centrally located in the heart of Kyoto. The best accomodation of our journey through Japan.

    We usually stay in modern hotels, but for a city as rich in history as Kyoto we felt it only appropriate to try the ryokan experience. It was definitely pricey, and it's not something we can afford every trip, but worth every penny to just...More

    Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
    in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
    entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
    Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
    gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
    streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
    dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
    lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
