Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.

Room very basic but clean. View looked out over a car park. This hotel is located in heart of Gion and as such surrounding roads are very narrow. This we found was a reason most taxis would not take us directly to the door which was a bit scary at night. Breakfast was included

The exterior looks like a flat complex. However, in 1970's ? the owner or the architectural designer would have been just a little drawn to California style. They decorated inside like a resort hotel in West Coast (US) with some European columns and Terracotta Tiles covering

Situated in a side street in the heart of Gion and where the Geisha can be seen hurrying to appointments, Hotel Sasarindou if perfectly placed. Great for transport with the metro station a hundred metres away. Cross the bridge and there’s a wealth of restaurants and bars to

From KIX to JR Kyoto Station, it will take 1h35m - by Airport Express Train Haruka or 2h by Airport Bus. Airport Bus is easy and more comfortable for tourists, I think. Hotel Sasarindou is located on edge of Gion, where is most popular sightseeing area in Kyoto. Center of the City.

Hello, Do you provide free wifi in guest rooms? Thank you!
Hi, we are driving. Is there free car park at the hotel?
"I was on the ground floor at the side and I heard very little noise."
"Some rooms have two beds. They can be pushed together if need be."
"Take your own pillow"
"All the rooms are quiet because none of them face any main road or night life activities."
"Ask for a bath with the sauna functions working!"
