Secrets of Gion Bike Tour
Gion is loved for its historic narrow alleyways, temples, shrines, and picturesque tea houses. On this tour, you’ll experience Gion’s most loved sights, as well as some hidden surprises. A bike tour helps you cover more ground than a walking tour, so you make the most of your time. See the Geisha districts, and enjoy plenty of stop-offs to learn about Japan’s former capital.

There is not much else for your mother to do except walk to one of the nearby temples. It is a quiet neighborhood area. I don't know taxi cost. We went by train and walking. I would guess $10-15.
