Gion

Gion

Gion is a traditional district where visitors can enjoy watching lavishly-dressed geisha, maiko girls and experience the excitement of Kyoto. The residential dwellings with their narrow doors and unusually long series of rooms are an unusual and distinctive feature of this area. The faint glow of the restaurants and signboards of the ryokan at dusk are part of the atmosphere to enjoy.
