We stayed for two nights at this Ryokan as part of our 'Japanese experience' and by the end we wished we had stayed for longer! We arrived by train in the morning, and were allowed to leave our bags at the ryokan while we visited...More
We stayed four night there in end of January. The location is at Gion only minutes away from Yasaka shrine and directly opposite Chion-in. It is a convenience location to visit other attractions. Although it is beside the main road and may hear some vehicle...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
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.
