    Gion
    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

    Hi there. We booked a room Feb 12th. We are transferring from Smile Hotel Kyoto so we were hoping we can bring our luggage early in the morning around 8am? I know check in isn’t until the afternoon but we need to check out of our other hotel early and want to go sightseeing right away. Pls let me know asap! Arigato Gozaimas

    ご飯でうかがいました 3日前までのキャンセルはやめてくださいと記載されていたので、きちんと人数も確認しておりましたのに、 当日、3時までのはずが 女将さんが出てきて、2時まででお願いしますと言われ、 バタバタご飯を食べ、バタバタ片付けられ お会計のあとも、挨拶もなく 女将にひどい扱いをうけました。 なぜ、当日にそんなことを言われるのでしょうか。 楽しい会が、スタッフと女将のせいで みんな楽しくなく帰路につきました

    ご質問の内容については宿泊者の立場からするとどうなんでしょうか?キャンセル料金は3日前から発生しますとホームページにも記載されていますし、女将さんの対応が問題あったのならば、直接旅館に問い合わせされた方が良いのではないでしょうか?
