Additional Information

Introduction

Situated in the scenic area of Higashiyama, Gion is a traditional entertainment district in Kyoto. Nowadays, it is a well-known attraction in Kyoto, and a must-see place for many tourists wishing to spot a geisha. During the day, the traditional Japanese restaurants and teahouses of this area serve as a place of relaxation, and visitors may often encounter geishas passing by. However, the evening is when this place really comes to life. You can expect to meet geisha and maiko here, or you could head to Gion Corner to watch a traditional art performance.
