Reviews about Hanamikoji


Reviewed on 29 Sep 2016

Flower to see the path, a not long but full of strong "Japanese flavor" of the path. Huajian Avenue has been the most stylish place in Japan since the Edo era. It is also one of the few places where geisha can be seen at present. By the way, Kyoto is not big, and the traffic in the city usually depends on buses. I recommend that you buy "one-day bus ticket" and take the bus unlimited in one day, which is very convenient.

Kyoto Zouyuan's Huajian Trail, Kyoto's most windy and snowy place, is also a famous geisha red light district in Kyoto. This mysterious path across the garden area is an ancient and famous flower street in Japan. The whole length of the road is about 1000 meters. There are many modern pubs and clubs in the north, but the southern section is a rare traditional flower street in Japan. In Japanese, it means to appreciate flowers. In the old days of Japan, it was the land of wind and moon in Kyoto. Huajian Avenue has been the most stylish flower-seeking street in Japan since the Edo era. When you step into the stone paved flower paths, you can see a delicate, curtained wine house. On both sides of the trail, many high-grade kiosks with bamboo fences and red walls are specially designed for Huaishi Stone. Usually, geisha entertainment programs are arranged. During the day, it is very quiet, and you can often see geishas or dancers (apprentices of geishas) who are trampling on wooden clogs and rushing to their appointments. The level of geisha can be seen from their clothes, which can be confirmed by the description of their life in Kyoto. When night falls, red lanterns will be lit in front of the doors of all kinds of wine houses, especially in the night. You can enjoy Japanese cuisine and geisha performances at the same time. It's still expensive. Sometimes the beautiful Japanese women you see may not be real geishas, but tourists, or ordinary Japanese women with good families. Real geisha is not necessarily to cater to your and my tastes. The Geisha in the movies are terribly dressed.
