Additional Location Information
Long ago, this place was in oldest Zen Temple ''Kenninji'' till EDO period. After the Meiji Restoration in 1868. Kenninji was ordered to shrink the size by the government. Geisha association came in to there, and started as Gion district. It has been as image of Gion since at that time by them. For real Gion district was inside the Kenninji temple grounds. We felt that we have to be bound in duty to suggestion both real ''Gion'' and ''Machiya'' as native Kyoto. That's why we started to rent ''Machiya'' in here. Every nights our guests are possible to find ''Geisya'' at just front of our the Gion House.
