Located near “Gion Higashi,” one of Kyoto's five “flower” districts (花街), you'll be surrounded by a neighborhood where geiko and maiko live to learn their performance.
A short stroll South will lead you towards the Shirakawa Dori, where many restaurants and shops, housed in traditional wooden structures, along with cherry blossom trees (a popular area to view sakura in the spring) line the river.
Streets are paved with cobblestone steps, and as you move further east, you will find the Shirakawa River lined with weeping willow trees. Its swaying branches, lush with green leaves, stretch towards the river to produce a picturesque view during the summer.
Head further South towards the most well-known area of Gion, Hanami-koji Street. Although this area is full of tourists during the day, take a short walk from Hatoba-an as night falls, to view a photo-worthy atmosphere created from the warm glow of the traditional lanterns which dot the streets.
