Gion is at Yasaka Shrine. Yasaka Shrine was called Gionsha before it was renamed. It was famous for a movie called Memoirs of a Geisha. You can see geishas in Hanami Koji. This is the largest geisha district in Kyoto, as well as a geisha hall.More
Gion, one of the few places in Japan where you get to meet the Maiko/Geisha in real person.Try to go there around 5pm, where chances of meeting the maiko heading to their workplace is pretty high, bear in mind, they do walk very fast despites wearing those kimono.
