    Guesthome located in traditional, quiet neighbourhood. Great to explore all the side streets and little cafés. Shared restrooms and showers but overall cozy, friendly, and traditional homey feel. We had the double room. Very comfortable comforter but bedsheets didn't fit the bed. Recommended.

    Gion
    Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"

    gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
    streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
