Recommendations for Temple Stay near or around Gion District

by Vintage.Vixen

My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Kyoto on September 6th and staying overnight, but leaving quite early in the morning on September 7th (must be at Kyoto Station at 6:30AM).

We had reserved accommodations at the Ninnaji Temple, but we realized that this is quite far North of Kyoto Station. We, unfortunately, have only one day and we figured that it would be better to stay near or around the Gion District. We do not really want to stay in a contemporary setting, but someplace that has some character and old world culture to it. We would LOVE to stay in a Temple if possible or anything that is aesthetically pleasing. We also wouldn't mind the outskirts (lots of foliage) as long as it didn't take too long to get back to Kyoto Station in the morning. We do not wish to spend more than 7000 yen per person, so we are willing to spend 14000 yen on a room(a little more if the place is a Gem). We won't be needing breakfast since we are leaving in the wee hours of the morning. Sharing bathrooms is not a problem.

Also, please advise me if there is a curfew, I notice that many do have early turn in hours. I really would like to make the most of my day in Kyoto and stay out as late as possible, but if the accommodations are something that are quite spectacular I wouldn't mind returning earlier.

Any other comments about Kyoto recommendations (food, sights, etc.) would be appreciated as well.

Thank you much! I've learned much from previous posts on this forum!!

Take a look at these:
I stayed at Gesshin-in in Kyoto, near Kiyomizu Temple. I don't recommend this one at all. You can go to my Kyoto accomodations page for more info.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Public Hot Baths

by bkoon

Yes, I tried it once. Many visitors do not know the procedure when bathing in a public hot bath.

Basically, what you have to do is as follows :
1. Walk into the hot bath area naked.
2. Before dipping into the hot bath, shampoo and rinse yourself clean.
3. Dip into the hot hot bath.
4. When you are done, get up, towel dry and put on your yugata.

Or just follow what others do.
That's it.


by devmicha about Jumbo Karaoke (karaoke Boxes)

Karaoke in Japan is a little different than in the west. You don't go to a bar and you don't sing in front of a bunch of strangers.
You go with your friends and you are put in a room with only the people you came with.
You can pik and sing as many songs as you want. You are billed by ythe hour but it is fairly cheep.
There are many many many Karaoke spots in Japan and especially in Kyoto but at our FAV spot you also get "nomihodai" all you can drink. What you wear in. Just try to wear it out.

Great Tonkatsu

by trvlrtom about Katsukura

This was a completely unexpected find for us in Kyoto. While walking along the Sanjo-dori arcade we saw a nondescript doorway entry being scrutinized by a Japanese couple and two foreigners. From the placard at the entrance it was obviously a restaurant, and since we were hungry, we followed the others in. Little did we know we were in for a great eating experience.

After passing through a pebbled ally, we entered a attractively decorated, contemporary restaurant filled with patrons. We were quickly brought to a table nestled between other diners and selected several items from the picture menu. Nothing disappointed us. Observing the Japanese diners around us, we had tonkatsu and kurobuta, which were both good quality and well prepared. First we were brought bowls of sesame seeds, which we ground up and added yuzu dressing to make a great dressing for the small mountain of shredded cabbage that was to come. The crumb coating on the main course was light and not at all soggy or greasy. It was one of the top meals we had in Japan, and not at all expensive. You pick it, and it will be good.

Timber bridges dancing in the air

by dogears

Tofuku-ji Temple Complex
The TSUTEN-KYO BRIDGE and the Garden of the ABBOT'S HALL are some of my favorite places in Kyoto. These 2 destinations are only part of the large complex of buildings, including the San-mon Main Gate (oldest in Japan).

Do not miss the nearby REIUN-IN Tea Garden - a maze of sliding shoji screen doors and a rock garden.

Perfect, relaxing place to go on the first day in Kyoto after travel. If you are ambitous, the Fushimi-Inari Hike (? page 148) looks great (but hard to do in reverse from reading the guide book directions).

1001 Kannon Statue

by daryll

Translate"hall with thirty-three spaces between the columns."
Considered one of Kyoto most well preserved temple.

Reason why you should go:
1. Contained 1001 Kannon Statue of Goddes of Mercy which all made from wood carving.
(Unfortunately photography is prohibited in this temple; but it looks amazing)
2. Red Striking colour of the exterior Temple creating a wonderful perspective if looking the corridors.
