[Kyoto] Gion 祗園

with one comment

On our 2nd day in Kyoto, we spent the whole afternoon and evening in Gion 祗園, an area where the geishas reside and entertain.  Supposedly the best time to see geishas is after 6pm when they begin to go out to entertain for the evening, but we were not so lucky even though we lingered in the area until after dark.

Dinner: Chinese style noodles (擔擔麵) at Kiyamachi.

To get there: By bus, take number 100 or 206 and get off at Gion bus stop. By train, take Keihan Line and get off at Gion Shijo Station or take Hankyu Line and get off at Kawaramachi Station.
