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.

This is one of the popular scenic spots in Kyoto. In the early days, it was a Geisha gathering area in Kyoto. It was also a traditional busy block in Kyoto. It was a bit similar to Jiufen Street in Taiwan. You can come here after two years and three years. Although the buildings here are relatively old, they are full of antique charm. There are tea rooms, snack shops selling antique early tastes, and shops renting Japanese style clothes. There are many tricyclists who wear more "exposed" clothes on this street, who are diligently and diligently soliciting customers, and there are also some small temples to visit. Many of them are fox fairy temples for marriage, but because they can't understand Japanese, they dare not worship or make promises, because they don't know if they will be like some temples in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, they have to return "thanks". You don't want to leave any "hands and tails" or "foreshadows" in order to avoid strange accidents. Ha-ha, ghost movies are too much to watch. I think all the way is slate road. Because we wear Japanese-style clothes and Japanese footwear, it's a bit difficult to walk and slow to walk. But it's also because of this dress, so it really has a different flavor. Here you can see a large area of old wooden houses with ancient charm, which should have a history of 32 years. There are many snack shops with high prices. There is also a "Yilan Ramen" branch here. Friends who are too lazy to stand in line at Dalton Home in Osaka can choose to eat in this one. It tastes exactly the same.
