Mume is a gem in the wonderful city of Kyoto. What makes this special hotel exceptional is the staff, especially Taiki who really goes out of his way to help you (plus his English is great which is helpful). The breakfasts are lovely in a...More
My wife and I went to Kyoto for a few days during our Honeymoon in Japan. Hotel Mume may have been our favorite lodging (hotel or ryokan) during our entire trip. Much has been said on this site about the virtues of Hotel Mume, so...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.
