Gion After Dark

Gion is in the heart of Kyoto between the Kamo River and Higashiyama mountains and very popular with foreign tourists. Maple trees and cherry blossoms trees line the streets that is lined with teahouses, machiya (traditional wooden buildings), small castles, temples and shrines. Gion is very happening at night and you will feel as if you are in a 15th century town especially when the storefronts are bathed in dim lights. A short walk brings you to the Kodaji Temple.
