Hello Ayurin

Thank you for your invitation. I would have loved to meet up with you all. Unfortunately, I dont arrive in Kyoto until the evening of Sunday 16th July (leaving England on 15th).

Hope you all have a lovely dinner. Careful! make sure the puffer-fish doesnt bite :-)

My best wishes to you and your husband.

Kind regards

Travel Tips for Kyoto

GEISHA

by Pixiekatten

A geisha is recognised by the more subtle kimono (robe-like dress). It is often not as bright and colourful as the Maiko's (pls see sep tip). The kimono only got one colour most of the time and it's based on tradtional Japanese themes. Also the obi (the broad 'waistbelt') is more subtle than the Maiko's. A geisha wears white collars under the kimono and this is a sign of maturity. While a Maiko wears tall okobo (clog-like laquered shoes) a geisha wears flat ones called zohri. Both geisha and maiko got a full white make-up and very red lips.

A geisha is trained in entertainment skills such as dance, singing and playing Shamisen (a 3-stringed guitar-like instrument) but they should also be refined in the art of conversation. A geisha is a carer and entertainer of men visiting a tea house.

In Kyoto it is very popular to be 'geisha for a day'. In Gion you can get the full makeup and rent a kimono for the day and head out on the streets to get the feel of people staring at you and want to take pictures. So if you are after a picture of a real geisha sticking to the teahouses in Gion is a hot tip. On wooden boards on the walls you can see how many geisha or maiko work at the teahouse (pls see seperate tip).

Since I didnt have a pic of a geisha I borrowed this one from: http://www.pixelparadox.com/pic/images/geisha.jpg

Bargains can be found in the shops of Kyoto

by BorderHopper

There are all sorts of things a visitor can buy and take home. I came across these special mushrooms in one the covered walkways lined with various stores. I'm not quite sure what was so special about these mushrooms but they were selling for over a hundred dollars. If you're interested in something more useful and traditional try hunting down bargain Geisha statues for $10, baby kimonos for $5, or $40 Samurai swords.

Kyoto by bus

by CliffClaven

Kyoto has a simple and very efficient subway system - but you don't see much when you are hurtling through an underground tunnel. To get a better feel for the city, take a bus. It's a bit confusing at first, but no problem at the end of the day: most of the buses seem to head for Kyoto station.

Gion corner

by caravaggio

Well you can meet with the geishas in the narrow streets in Gion and also can taste the tea ceromony(chado) by them for 30.000 jy in some houses. I advice you to see a Bunraku in Gion..japanese puppet show for about 1000jy and you can have a chado in the same place nearly the same prize.

Waratenjin

by aukahkay

Just south of Kinkakuji is a shrine called Waratenjin, a Shinto shrine. During the cherry blossom period, the gardens of this shrine are popular with the Japanese for hanami outings. Rows of food stalls selling takoyaki and other delicacies do brisk business as families and friends gather around low tables with red table-cloths to enjoy hanami.
