A good time in the center of Geisha Area.

A-yado Gion Guest House recently opened in the cultural center of Japan,Kyoto. It's one of the most convenient accomodation for Kyoto explorers, located right in the middle of the city center, 5minutes on foot from Hankyu and Keihan railway main stations.
Furthermore our accomodation lies in the middle of the exclusive Geisha district, Gion. This area is made of hundreds of Japanese old-style houses, Machiya alongside a beautiful small stream,Shirakawa. In the evening these streets are coloured with beautiful illumination from restaurants and Geisha walking around. It is the best place for the travelers to get in touch with the profoundness of Japanese culture.
Not only accessible to all the beautiful spots in Kyoto, the location makes it easy for you to reach exciting surrounding cities as Nara, Osaka and Kobe and to enjoy lively nightlife in Japan.
