Where to stay near Gion

About Gion

Kyoto's famous geisha district, Gion is the embodiment of Japanese grace. Many of its streets are lined with traditional wooden “machiya” merchant houses, which give it a unique old world aesthetic. Though by far, the main attraction is the “geiko” geisha and their “maiko” apprentices. For some, simply catching a glance at a geisha making her way to or from an engagement is an experience in itself.

Hanami-koji Street running from Shijo Avenue to Kenninji Temple is the epicentre of Gion’s geisha scene. Here, a myriad of restaurants entice guests with promises of local Kyoto delicacies. For an exclusive Gion experience, “ochaya” teahouses serve Japanese artisan tea, poured by beautifully made up geiko and maiko. Though refreshments aren’t the only thing on offer, with the expert hostesses singing, dancing and playing music.

By rail, the closest stations are Gion Shijoon the Keihan Line and Kawaramachi on the Hankyu Line. Local buses also run to the Gion district, and taxi drivers are always happy to make the trip.

For a break from the bustle of Hanami-koji Street, the Shirakawa Area is one of Kyoto’s most scenic districts. Running alongside the Shirakawa Canal, its main avenue is lined with elegant willow trees, upscale restaurants and elite ochaya teahouses. For an even more authentic and off-the-beaten-track experience, take a stroll to the nearby Higashiyama District to unlock access to beautifully preserved streets, traditional shops and the occasional elusive geisha sighting.
