This is one of those places where you don't want to tell anyone about because you want to keep it for yourself. I would give them 10 stars if I could. This along with another place I stayed at in Kyoto is one of the...More

We booked here because of the fantastic reviews and were not disappointed. This is a small boutique hotel in the wonderful Gion District of Kyoto, very well situated for peace and quiet but close enough to the main attractions of Kyoto.

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
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
