“Hanamachi” District (花街) – also know as a “flower district” when translated literally -- these historical areas are where geiko & maiko entertain customers by performing classical music, dance, and traditional games.

Kyoto is famous for its 5 Hanamachi Districts, with Gion being one of the most well-known & recognizable. Hanamikoji Street is a long street dotted with traditional machiya townhouses, ochaya, and restaurants serving Kyoto cuisine. At the end of this street is Kenninji Temple, an important Zen Buddhist Temple. Turn a few corners from Kenninji to find yourself in front of “Gion-Minami Banka” machiya house.

Local Information

Local Information

A traditional machiya house that can be found in the heart of Gion, come and explore first-hand a neighborhood steeped in Kyoto’s rich history.
“Gion-Minami Banka” borrows its name from a 4-character Japanese idiom「千変万化」(sen-pen-ban-ka), an idiom which refers to “innumerable changes”. You will discover that the machiya house embodies this idea through its design and architecture. While the exterior of Gion-Minami Banka reflects the classic features of many machiya houses – lattice windows and doors, wooden features, ichimonji kawara roof tiles (roof tiles that resemble the kanji character "一"), and earthen walls – its interior showcases the different sides of Japanese culture.

Gion-Minami Banka is found in the ideal location for those who are looking to explore all of Kyoto -- from the famous Kiyomizu Temple to the lesser known Ebisu Jinja Shrine.

If you get an early start to your morning, round the corner towards Kenninji Temple and join a “zazen” experience -- the practice of seated meditation, or take a morning stroll towards Kiyomizu Temple.

In the evening, walk down towards Hanamikoji Street to witness the numerous machiya restaurants light up under the glow of red and white paper lanterns. Yasaka Shrine, which is a 5 minute walk away, offers the occasional outdoor food stall & festivals various times throughout the year.
