When booking a surprise trip to Asia for my wife, I had struggled between a chain hotel and Hotel Mume for our brief stay in Kyoto. I am so glad we came here as the hotel was one of the highlights of our trip.
The hotel is conveniently located the heart of Kyoto and very well presented but it's the staff who make this place amazing. They were so lovely and helpful, and you're always welcomed back after a long day and offered snacks and drinks.

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.
