You Gotta Love Kyoto
Gion Kyoto’s traditional entertainment district
Gion Kyoto’s traditional entertainment district is the perfect place to stay when visiting this great city. At one end of the street you cross the river & at the other end is Yasaka Shrine.
Yasaka Shrine is also known as Gion Shrine, one of the most famous shrines in Kyoto. Founded over 1350 years ago, the shrine is located between the popular Gion District and Higashiyama District, and you can simply walk between the two districts.
Locals & tourists like the dress up as Geishas.
There are many shops all over Kyoto when you can hire the traditional dress.

You should have heard the magnificent sound coming from this fabulous vehicle. The awning you can see on the right is the APA Hotel where I stayed, a great location with large rooms, as a bonus there is a Starbucks on the ground floor. For a really good room rate just book through THIS LINK, it will also give you free cancellation.
If you are travelling from Kyoto station to Gion forget the train just take either bus 100 or 110 from the station.
