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.

Great for a foreigner once you get used to the strangeness and the rules of the place which you have to follow. When I travelled here was the best price for the location which was perfect - right on the Main Street of gion.
Clean, spacious (regardless its capsule hotel), quite, friendly staff, nice and big bath (public), limited but private bath is also available, rooftop sauna and bath is a must. Overall for the price I really liked it even though its just for man only. Nice breakfast....More
It is not an equal opportunity world and that is too bad for the ladies in this case. This is a male-only capsule hotel with a spa/sento (onsen), which can mean hanging around with a lot of naked Japanese men. I went on the weekend...More
