  • Traditional meets Modern Luxury

    "We just enjoyed almost three weeks at the Gion House. This was our second time visiting Gion, but first time with our son who is 3yrs. old. The house was very clean and Tokuji san was very thoughtful in preparing a children's chair for the table, his own mini futon set next to ours and a child gate at each end of the stairway. The Kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need to prepare a meal, we cooked our breakfast every morning. The bathroom is top notch with an interactive toilet you would expect and a not so expected auto fill soaking tub which is relaxing anytime of day. The tatami room was spacious for the three of us and although the pillows were a bit odd at first, we miss them now! The Gion house is located on a semi busy street which is great for getting a taxi if you need it, we usually didn't since the location is a short walk to so many places. You do get street noise. It did not bother us, but if you are a light sleeper, you might have an issue. There is construction next door but we rarely heard anything. I would definitely recommend the Gion House. As far as recommendations for food, a few places near by stood out: Ten you located close to Nishiki market was a top notch private dining tempura experience. We found some humble, delicious ramen at Ramen Fuji Gogo. Yummy yakitori at Wabiya Korekido, their mushroom rice is to die for. The best iced vanilla latte I am having a hard time living without from KissaMaster, also by the market. Our favorite day trips were Arashiyama and Kobe. The Kobe herb gardens were so beautiful and when in Kobe you gotta try the beef right? We ate at Ishida Kitaozaka, not only delicious but a great dining experience. After all the food and sightseeing it was so great to come back to the Gion House, the perfect base for your adventures in Kyoto and beyond. We hope to be back soon! Thank you Tokuji San, you are a great host!"
