Gion is a historic Geisha district in Kyoto. Its narrow streets and traditional buildings make it a uniquely charming area of an already charming city.

Tourists and locals alike can be seen roaming the neighborhood in elaborate kimonos which are available for rent.

Like most places in Kyoto, people arrive by bicycle and then just leave them wherever they happened to stop, with little concern that it won’t be there when the return.
