Gion

It's getting wormer in Kyoto, and the good season for sightseeing is coming.
Gion is a famous sightseeing spot in Kyoto.
It locates in the eastern part of this city, and is famous as a downtown.
At first, it was formed as a town in front of a shrine, Gionsya ,which is called Yasaka shrine right now.
Because of the long history, some parts of the town still keep its traditional appearance and became a cultural asset.
If you are lucky, you might be able to watch walking Geisya in the area.
