This exclusive, finest establishment, since 1689, is by membership only. NHK World received special permission to go inside and broadcast a dinner. This is a review of that broadcast and not a personal experience. The cuisine is the finest and focus' on the guest of...More

I'm astounded by all the positive reviews. There is really nothing to see here. There are a bunch of privacy screens (you can't see inside), the outside is unimpressive, and there's no way to go inside. If you want to see geisha, go elsewhere. I...More

Located on the corner of Shijo dori and Hanamikoji dori. Walking tours of Gion will tell you as much as they can about this place. It is the most exclusive teahouse in Kyoto with membership near impossible to join. The temptation is to peep in...More

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
