Gion on the eastern bank of the Kamogawa is a famous entertainment district. This is the best spot in Kyoto, and probably the whole of Japan, for geisha spotting.

It was interesting walking around in the Gion District. We did a bit of shopping but we mostly sepnt time on what they call Geisha Street. We did see a few Geisha, and A monk of all people... It was nice looking at the architecture they used on traditional housing over there. THe shopping on the Geisha Street is a bit expensive but I found a few things that were cheaper anywhere else... Good place to go... Though I didn't spend much time...

This neigbourhood has some real nice spots, but then other areas are just flooded with tourists. It is a mix of fabricated and genuine charme. Still a nice spot to walk are around. Remember that most Geisha you see during the day are dressed up tourists, you can recognise them by the fact thtat they are waring wigs. Must say that dressing up like a Geisha is great fun.

Gion is the most famous geisha street in Kyoto and all of Japan. It's really calm and beautiful in the evenings and you actually might spot a real geisha (most of the 'maikos' or 'geishas' you see during the day are dressed up tourists...)

Just a beautiful place. I could roam the streets for hours, enjoying the atmosphere and keeping an eye out for Geisha.

The most beautiful place in the world, especially at night... High chance of spotting a Geisha!
