My husband and I stayed at this charming inn, set in the heart of the Geisha district. While it was a little difficult to find, it was conveniently located. We loved it. It was very traditional in appearance with a lovely tea house where we...More

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
