Gion Shinmonso

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Gion Shinmon-so is a Japanese style inn in the Gion district, famous for Geisha and Maiko. In the evenings, you may have the chance to spot Maiko walking on the street. Gion district is the best place to feel the traditional taste of Kyoto.

It is easy to access many major tourist attractions such as temples (Kiyomizu-dera etc), shrines (Yasaka-jinja etc) and shop streets within walking distance. Close to many stations and bus stops, it is an ideal location for tourism.

All guest rooms are Japanese style renovated in March 2007. There are communal baths and also private (privately chartered) baths. No reservations required.

Kyoto\'s local cuisine, \'Kyo-kaiseki\' courses are served upon request.

Inside each room, there is an air conditioner, refrigerator, TV, bath towels, hand towels, soap, hair dryer, toothbrush set, yukata (light Japanese robe), safety box. Bicycle hire is 1300yen per day.

We have rooftop space (open during summer), a banquet room and a souvenir shop.
