Gion & Kiyomizu Temple

The geisha and maiko of Kyoto can be seen walking on the stone-paved streets through scenery brimming with traditional Japanese elegance in Gion. The streets are full …moreof life all the way up to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

This area includes Gion, Kyoto’s largest hanamachi (the areas of Kyoto where geisha live), Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and Maruyama Park, and it bustles with sightseers from Japan and abroad no matter the season.
