Gion Accommodation

THE 10 BEST Kyoto Gion Accommodation

Gion Accommodation

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.

    Traditional Japan
    When you think traditional Japan, this is it. The architecture is stunning. Winding back streets, hidden gems and incredible detail. It has both a local and touristy feel. Steeped in culture with many people wearing traditional Geisha dress. Lots of restaurants and shops. You can happily and easily spend several hours walking around and soaking it all in. Absolute must see/ do

    Still atmospheric at night
    We were here many years ago and it was magical especially at night . You could actually see real geisha walking around the. Now, it is unfortunately all tourists walking around in rental kimonos. However, at night, you can walk around and still feel the old traditional atmosphere and lose yourself in the side streets.

    Tradition and Tourism
    We were lucky to be staying at a terrific hotel here and could walk around this historic area a lot. There is a true feeling of tradition along the narrow streets with ancient buildings and temples. There is a clash of modernity (unattractive electric and phone power lines cross crossing above) and the crowds of tourists parading around as if they are Geikos (geishas) and the shops which reflect both of these opposing sides in Gion. I recommend doing a real meditation at one of the temples with a monk. Also you get a different vibe at different times of the day and night when you walk through the neighborhood.

    Beautiful! Perfect to get lost in it
    A must visit if you’re in Kyoto! Love the traditional old buildings! Very crowded but still worth a trip. Walking around and getting lost is Best! We also got lucky and saw monks walking in Gion!

    Atmospheric historical area of secrets and sin
    A deliciously dark and shaded area of town, redolent with historical intrigue. This is where the educated girls, trained in the ways of entertaining, hosted their clients. High-class rather than seedy. An utterly fascinating place.

    Old Japanese charm
    There are several micro-neighborhoods within Gion, it this is definitely worth a visit and not far from the city center. The old wooden shops, lanterns, and cherry blossoms were a site to behold. The biggest downside is it is crowded.

    A trip back in time
    Took a long stroll through Gion on the way to Kiyomizu-dera and it was one of the highlights of our time in Kyoto. Beautiful traditional architecture and narrow streets, dotted with temples, shrines, and theaters. We just wandered and enjoyed the atmosphere. We had heard that the local community was a bit sensitive about tourists taking photos in Gion, so we didn't take any. Additionally it was Golden Week so a bit crowded and full of tourists (both international and local) dressed up in kimono...which was weird b/c it seemed to me to be genuinely not the sort of place to hike around in geta...unless you have a reason to be hiking around in geta. I think Gion would be a lovely place to explore on a foggy rainy day, or at night,...and likely would have been more enjoyable had it been a weekday and not a national holiday. But I am so glad we went and I think that, if I went back, I'd book accommodation in the neighborhood.

    Really fun night time tour with sweets included
    This was a really fun three hour tour of Gion. Our guide, Kats, was very knowledgable and kind. We stopped for tea and sweets and saw the lights turn on in the neighborhood. We spotted a Geisha and saw some amazing temples and shrines. Highly recommend.

  • City Center Hotels
    No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

  • Shimogyo-ku Hotels
    Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

  • Southern Kyoto Hotels
    Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

  • Northern Kyoto Hotels
    Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.

  • Pontocho Hotels
    Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.

  • Western Kyoto Hotels
    Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

  • Nishijin District Hotels
    A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
