Gion Holiday: coronavirus information

Flight-inclusive Gion holiday packages and Gion Flight-Plus arrangements created by you on Expedia.co.uk are financially protected by the ATOL scheme.

Most Gion hotels also offer free cancellation. Consider booking refundable hotels rather than non-refundable ones. Just look for the ‘free cancellation’ message during your hotel search. Prices can vary, but right now we believe that flexibility matters.

Places to Visit in Gion

It's nice to just roam the streets when you're somewhere new, but sometimes it's wise to come up with a plan. Grab your travel schedule — we have lots of excellent ideas for your forthcoming Gion holiday.

Gion is a popular place to stay as it's near the Kiyomizu Temple. Make sure you've got plenty of space on your camera before making your way to this star attraction.

Heian Shrine and the Gion Corner are in close proximity to this neighbourhood. Since you'll be just a walk away, be sure to take your most comfortable shoes.

Temples have long invited pilgrims seeking divine enlightenment. Walk around the holy site of Sanjusangendo Temple and have your own mystical experience. There's a wonderful range of things to keep you busy in this destination. If you have a curious mind, it's worth taking the trip to Kyoto International Manga Museum. You never know what you'll discover while you're there! Still have time to spare? Temples have long called to pilgrims in search of divine enlightenment. Enter the hallowed site of Nanzenji Temple and enjoy some quiet reflection.

When we think back over our travels, we remember experiences rather than our nice hotel room and its view of the sea. Ready to create some new holiday memories?

This place has loads of activities on offer. Here are some suggestions to kick off your trip to Gion:

            Fantastic location. Friendly, helpful staff. Only downside is size of room - ok for me on my own but lack of wardrobe and/or size of room would have been an issue if I'd stayed longer/been travelling with my partner. Would however, stay here again.
