Posted by Erika

There are many famous shrines and temples in the Gion and Higashiyama areas of Kyoto, so you can feel the history and enjoy it even if you travel alone.

Hanamikoji-dori Street is lined with traditional teahouses, and if the timing is right, you will have a chance to meet Maiko.

Walking along a stone-paved path or smacking at a gourmet restaurant in Kyoto … It’s a great place for girls to travel alone.♪

 

Why don’t you stay at a nice hotel after sightseeing? Enjoy a tasteful trip and heal your tired heart.

If you travel alone and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the room and the delicious food, it will be a precious time to reflect on yourself!

I would like to introduce you to a hotel in Gion where you can stay comfortably even by yourself.
