    Keep our Gion spirit of nokyo-sho here if you're here you will gather nokyo-SHO of the Gion Festival in Gion (Gion spirit Association) Festival in the birthplace and likely uses. Get in the underdrawing in nokyo of Gion Festival related-sho this think was Yasaka Shrine, Ofuna halberd, Aya Festival. After the famous EHO, turn direction "ehou" on new year's Eve here and only in Japan. I'd probably put bells on new year's Eve.

    M. is a small garden, but history is still is the garden. During the Heian period is enjoyed sailing, singing and flowers music. Nokyo-Sho, Shizuka gozen motif was popular. Yoshitsune met and it's a lovely walk and going to two. Lovely arched bridge crossed I. This day will take before the Bride Groom. Was hot in the morning but happy I have received.

    Pretty little garden and temple, free to visit. Might as well if you are nearby, but don't detour here on purpose.

    Small, but calm and relaxing. If you stand in the middle of the bridge and look down into the koi fish pond, you'll notice them swarming around waiting to be fed.

    Small but nice. A break from the very busy and somewhat dusty castle nearby. A carp food vending machine is here and you can fee the carp from the waters edge or from the bridge. There was also a very friendly duck getting about.

    A cute cafe that sold the brunch my group needed to keep having fun. The egg and rice omelet was reasonably priced, standing at 700 yen a dish. This cafe is next to Nijo castle so stop by and grab a bite before visiting.

    Superb! If you are near Nijo castle you also have to see this.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
