Gion travel guide: Walking through Kyoto?s geisha district






Kyoto is one of the most well-known cities in Japan. It is the capital city of the Kyoto Prefecture of Japan?s Kansai region. For more than one thousand years, Kyoto was the Imperial capital of Japan.At the city?s heart lies Gion, a center of the traditional arts and famed entertainment district. If you?re searching for a taste of traditional Japan, Gion?s flagstone streets lined with wooden buildings is a good place to start.Gion?s entertainment district arose as a direct result of its religious sites. Food and lodging were needed by religious pilgrims traveling to visit these sites. Kabuki drama eventually became popular on the west side of the district. Today, it is Kyoto?s most famous geisha district. Contrary to popular belief, geisha, or geiko in the Kyoto dialect, are not prostitutes; they are ?women of the arts,? entertainers highly trained in art, music, and dance.How to get to GionGion is located to the north and south of Shijo Street, from the Kamo-gawa River in the west to the Yasaka-Jinja Shrine in the east.To reach Gion, use your Japan Rail Pass to reach Kyoto Station. Then, take bus number 100 or 206 to the Gion bus stop.You can also take a local train in one of Kyoto’s private lines: the closes stations to Gion are Shijo Station (on the Keihan Line, 210 yen to Kyoto Station) and Kawaramachi Station (on the Hankyu Line, also 210 yen to Kyoto Station).Book your Japan Rail Pass nowThings to do in GionAt the Minamiza Kabuki Theater, you can step back in t...
