One of our most memorable hotel experiences! Hotel Mume is a charming, perfectly located boutique hotel in Kyoto. Our room (Wind) was delightful, cozy, and spacious. What really makes this hotel outstanding is the staff. From the moment we entered through the beautiful red door,...More

Truly amazing hotel, the attention to detail and kindness of the staff is unparalleled. I am always going to remember the warm artisanal breads at breakfast. You can tell it’s going to be a different experience when the owner personally greets you.
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.
