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 enjoyed the ryokan experience although my husband did not, for this reason the lower score, I found the ryokan beautiful and the service impeccable however it was so expensive that I don't think the price matched the experience. We loved Kyoto and Japan and have so many fond memories of this fabulous country...I would recommend a 1 night stay instead of 2.

After the first satisfactory visit 2 years ago, I brought my family to Yuzuya this time. The location is excellent and the building is very nice. We had 2 rooms: 1 room has a lovely view of the waterfall and another just have windows looking out to a car park. During my first stays 2 years ago, I had a room near the front entrance and it was extremely noisy. I asked for quiet rooms this time and they were a lot better. I stayed in the room facing the car park, but hardly heard any traffic. I occasionally would hear the big bell at Yasaka shire, but apart from that, it was quiet and peaceful. Both rooms have hinoki cypress bath tubs. I actually preferred the public bath as it’s a lot more spacious. They don’t have many rooms, so the public bath wouldn’t be over crowded. We always had the bath for ourselves due our 2 nights there. Breakfast and dinner were as good as usual. The meals at Yuzuya were not the most luxurious ones that I had in Japan, but I actually like them a lot. I like the hint of yuzu citrus fruit in their dishes. The owner and the staff there were helpful. They help me send my suitcase to my hotel to Tokyo and carried our luggage to the taxi when we left.

Simple and sparse are two words that I would use for this Ryokan. You sleep on the floor. You have a very Japanese breakfast (savoury fish!). You bathe with other guests in a common soak tub, naked. A very relaxing experience once you get used to it.

Not knowing what to expect we booked this hotel. Central located in the old part of Kyoto the hotel is small and very intimate. We ate there for 2 dinners and had really good food. The breakfasts were great. The staff were very capable of recommending restaurants, booking cabs, etal.

We did not stay here but had lunch. Our favorite dish of our entire 9 days in Japan was the Yuzu porridge. It was unlike anything we ever had. A rice porridge with fish, eggs and a yuzu squeezed into the center. A lovely 4 course meal.
