Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and

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

Thank you for asking. We use only gluten free soy sauce, even for non-allergic people. Therefore non-gluten free dishes are only 4 of our all menus. Feel safe and relaxed to enjoy our meals!
