Travel Photos Series#22-The Street of Gion, Kyoto

The cobbled streets and alleys of Gion destrict were lit up in the night by big red lanterns. We came with the intent to catch a glimpse of Geisha who entertained in the Japanese teahouses (Ochaya).

Well-preserved traditional wooden machiya merchant houses could be easily spotted here and we had a sumptuous dinner in one of them which served One Michelin Star Unadon (Eel rice). This is one of the star destinations in Kyoto. Japan and not many would leave this place disappointed.

  1. Love to revisit! I "caught" some Geishas during my last trip. Did you too?

  2. Lovely lanterns and so typical for Japan. They always brighten up the streets at night.
