    *NEWS! WE HAVE ANOTHER TWO BEDROOM HOUSE IN GION AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY STARTING MARCH 1. INQUIRE FOR DETAILS.

    The Gion House is an old wooden, traditional-style 'machiya,' located on an atmospheric side street in the awe-inspiring geisha quarters of Gion, in the heart of old Kyoto. It was fully restored by renowned Kyoto-based architect Geoffrey Moussas.
