      Higashiyama's Gion district is Kyoto's main historical center of traditional theater, arts, and (now) antiques. It is also known as the last training center for geishas.

Your curiosity and patience will inevitably reward you with a glimpse of a genuine geisha or maiko (apprentice geisha), the copious layers of her opulent—and unimaginably heavy—silk kimono rustling as she hurries to an appointment or a training session.

      Founded in 788 just before the city entered its golden age as the imperial capital its numerous buildings nestle lovingly against steep Mt. Higashiyama in a dramatic cascade of thatched and tiled roofs. However, most of what we see today is actually a 17th-century reconstruction of the original 8th-century structure.

      With its numerous buildings set within extensive grounds Kiyomizu’s main attraction is the hondo (main hall). This elevated structure’s projecting wooden terrace is supported by a vast arrangement of 139 massive interlocking beams.

      Across on the mountainside is another terrace on which imperial courtiers and dignitaries would sit, while enjoying dance performance and music recitals on the hondo’s broad terrace.

      • Your average temple, with a really cool gate. I was lucky enough to go on a day where the monks were ringing the large bell. That was beautiful!
      • Grand place. Outside of autumn this place wouldn't be 5 stars.
      • A bit packed, but sooooo worth it to come during New Years when they LITERALLY ring in the new year
      • The main temple is under renovation and blocked off until 2019. But the area still offers much for visitors. Try hojo garden for 400 yen. It's worth the price.
      • Chion-in is the head Temple of the Jodo Sect of Japanese Buddhism.
