We stayed here early March, and I have nothing but kind words. The staff members are so nice; they always greet you with smiles on their faces. They speak good English, too, so foreigners are more than welcome to stay. Don't hesitate to ask them...More
This is my seconds stay here which says a lot about how happy I am with this quaint guesthouse. On the first two nights, I stayed on the same room so you can just read my review here (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g298564-d1818511-Reviews-Guest_house_Rakuza-Kyoto_Kyoto_Prefecture_Kinki.html).
On the last night, since all...More
I stayed here with my mom in the twin room which is on the first floor and near the toilet and bathroom and the stairs. We had no problem whatsoever with our stay here. The rooms were lovely and the futons, comfortable. The staff were...More
The young lady on staff was very kind and helpful; her English is quite good. We dropped our luggage (backpacks) off before noon and the exchange was very easy and friendly. Our twin room was clean and spacious, wifi excellent, the location great. Only lacking...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.
