From the moment we arrived we knew our stay at Mume would be different to every other hotel we had stayed at. Being a small boutique hotel we expected a higher level of personal service but what we got was beyond anything we had imagined!...More
Words cannot describe our experience staying at Mume! We travel a lot for work and pleasure and and stayed in top hotels around the globe, but trust me no other hotel would ever beat the service and thoughtfulness of Mume.

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.
