I stayed here with my parents in May 2015.
I'd done Japan alone the previous year entirely in capsule hotels, but I wanted to find a place that would be a little nicer for my parents.
It has a perfect location for sightseeing. You can...More
I stayed there for 2 nights, the owner is very friendly. There is shared toilet and Japanese style bathroom. Good price for those who want to live in traditional japanese room. And if you are lucky, you can see 2 cats (should be owner's pets)...More
Excellent value! The location is very central and Gion is the best area for Geisha spotting and exploring Kyoto. The inn itself is situated down a quiet but arty alley and is a short walk to the riverside. From here you can find all the...More

This little inn was a great place to explore Kyoto from. It is in a small alley not very far away from Gion and also other forms of transportation. Taking public transport from the shinkansen station might be a little difficult, but I would recommend...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.
