The food was really good. We had the steak grilled right in front of us and also Okonomiyaki, a kind of pancake. It was delicious and the prices are totally fine.

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

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

Yes but it is hard to communicate unless you a) have a good translation app or b) you can speak Japanese. I wouldn't recommend for vegetarians....
