Kinoe is a small Japanese-style hotel/ryokan. The staff were very friendly - they helped reserve a kaiseke dinner and wrote down options for us to understand. The beds were Japanese futons - comfortable. Good location in Gion to easily walk to bus stop, temples, night...More
I CANNOT emphasize how ideal the location of this ryokan is: right next to the castle walls of Kennin-ji, a vibey walk through Hanamikoji Alley through throngs of revelers to the Kamo River, a scenic hike's distance to Kiyomizudera and the ancient Ishibei-koji lane and...More
For a central spot with old fashioned charm you can't go wrong. The baths are clean and spacious. The products good quality. The tea in room a plus
The prices are very steep however and the rate we got did not even include breakfast....More
Everything about our stay in this lovely ryokan in the heart of Gion was exceptional. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable, the food was gorgeous and delicious and the staff was both friendly and very helpful. My only regret is that I wasn't in...More
Kinoe is well located near Gion, a beautiful area to have dinner or to stroll through after dinner. The traditional style rooms took a bit to adjust to but were very comfortable. It is just that we are not used to the beds, tables, etc...More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with 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
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
