Profile: Gion

Profile: Gion

Gion is situated southeast of downtown Kyoto, and was built around the colorful Yasaka Shrine, which dates back to 656 AD and which features a distinctive bright-red gate. Visitors here for the annual “hanami” cherry-blossom festival in nearby Maruyama Park.

Gion originally sprung up around the shrine to offer food and entertainment to pilgrims, and visitors to the area can still take advantage of traditional hospitality in the form of a tea ceremony in one of the authentic tea houses. If you’re lucky, you may even spot one of Japan’s last geisha shuffling down one of the quiet, lantern-hung streets.

    Gorgeous property. Gion is hands down my favorite area ive seen. Been in japan for 2 weeks. Only small issue with some dead bugs and small flies in restroom. Other than that, this place was amazing. Super high tech too. I loved it. Would do gion and stay here again.

    We like this 2nd floor with art work and spacious and good location. But I wish at least sometime someone stay at the front desk to ask any question.

    Stunning. View. Clean. Cozy. Easy. Location. VIEW!

    This room was so absolutely beautiful and cozy. In many reviews, people say that no one is there but no one is necessary. Check-in is so easy. The place feels completely safe. And the shower room was wonderful. The location is right in the heart but a little away from the hoards. It is a little bit of a splurge but you definitely get what you pay for. We saved it for our last night and enjoyed every minute. It was perfect for a couple.

    spent 5 days, great accommodations , HOWEVER, no mention of 3 floor walk up and i have very bad knees. it was terrible. i would have definitely requested the 1st floor room. also, didn't know where to deposit trash and after 5 days, 3 people it would have been nice to empty and never saw a person to ask. the room and location are great and i would recommend .

    At first glance the place is impeccable and once all the lights are on the place shines even more. The bath and amenities were great, coffee and tea etc. all nice. The seating area by the window is nice especially if you have the ducks swimming around. They supplied everything we needed, nice towels and robes etc. hair dryer for my partner, mirror and seats etc. all nice shiseido items. Controls for lighting by the bed. Chargers for phones and laptops etc supplied too. Tv. The location of the place is amazing If you want to stay in Gion as it’s close by so many great places. It’s Japan so you should be trying to get by. Not complaining about walking. Not complaining about no English menu. Be more adventurous trying new different and strange places and getting out of your comfort zone. It’s good to look up a little about some things before travelling to any new place. Don’t walk and eat unless it’s that type of place. Don’t litter. At all. Yes, carry your rubbish till you find a bin. It’s best to have a strap bag. I am rushing this a little as I’m about to go out for dinner and drinks in Osaka now. Over all yes I will give this two thumbs up and 5 stars and recommend it to people I know. As I don’t want it to get too busy for when I come back.
