Didn’t eat here so can’t comment on the food. Bar itself is inviting with a good selection of beers and spirits at the going rate for the area.

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
