We stayed (unfortunately) only one night at the riokan but it was a wonderful experience that I hope to repeat. The location is superbe, just at the begining of Gion, seconds away from the tea houses. The service was excellent, reception and other personnel very friendly and ready to help and guide. The breakfast is almost legendary, not only because...

My wife and I stayed at the Gion Fukuzumi for two nights. We opted for one of their traditional rooms, which had no bed. Instead, the room was cleared of furniture and futons were placed on the floor each night. I have to admit the futons were not the most comfortable sleeping accommodation, but they were authentic, and we were...

Loved the location. Service was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly service. Try the traditional Japanese breakfast. The staff are really wonderful and friendly. We were fortunate to have a Japanese speaker with us. Do not know how much English was available.

The position of the Ryokan is very good. We stayed here (me and husband) with our 6 years old son. While the furniture seems not brand new it was all very clean. For a trip to Japan you have to try this experience, tea served in room by a Japanese lady on arrival and dinner served again in your room....

What a wonderful place to stay! The staff were very polite and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. The food (dinner and breakfast) was excellent too. The room we had was clean and spacious by Japanese standards. The owner's wife even came up to our room to welcome and thank us for choosing to...

Very Comfortable hotel (as with most Jap accom, small compared to western). We had a great time hear, lovely staff (even for Japaneses!! ) and in a great central location! You are smack in the middle of the historical area and are bound to see Geisha on the streets (early evening mostly). Close to major train stations and bus routes....

For first time visitors to Japan we wanted to experience a traditional ryokan specifically in the Gion district of Kyoto. Ryokan Gion Fukuzumi was the perfect place. At the very edge of the Geisha district near Higashiyama St and just steps away from the heart of old Gion with all its ancient narrow streets, canals, shops and best of all...

Staying in Gion

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“I got room 303. It is a corner room (we were two people, not sure it will fit more). The noise from the street is minimal, it has a lot of natural light and you have a lovely view of the entrance to the neighbouring park.”
