I loved walking around Gion. The main street is full of people trying to get a glimpse of a Geisha and chasing after them with cameras (it was similar to watching papparazzi with a celebrity). However we spent our time there strolling in the back streets, which are small, lined with beautiful old buildings and full of character and charm.
We were very lucky to see 3 Geisha. We just silently watched them as they glided from one house to another, an absolute delight to observe!
