Gion
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.

This is a lovely hostel with great facilities and in a nice modern Japanese style. The manager there is really friendly and will recommend things to do so made the stay really enjoyable. Kyo-top-notch I say - highly recommended!

A quiet hidden little guesthouse, close to the Gion geisha quarter. Quite a few rules to abide by and I would imagine it would be a bit awkward having to vacate during cleaning. However as we only stayed one night this wasn't an issue for...More
