About Gion, Osaka

Gion (祇園, ぎおん) is a district of Kyoto, Japan, originally developed in the Middle Ages, in front of Yasaka Shrine (Gion Shrine). The district was built to accommodate the needs of travelers and visitors to the shrine. It eventually evolved to become one of the most exclusive and well-known geisha districts in all of Japan. The term Gion is related to Jetavana. The geisha in Kyoto do not refer to themselves as geisha; instead, they use the local term geiko. While the term geisha means "artist" or "person of the arts", the more direct term geiko means essentially "a woman of art".

  • お店にはうるさいお客様の接待でどこか良い店を探していたところ紹介をいただき初めて訪れました。 西天満の静かな場所にある隠れ家的なお店です。 噂に違わずとても良い店でした。 改装オープンして間もないとのことですが、庭の見える座敷は都心にあるとは思えない落ち着いた風情。 料理も和洋両方を取り入れた凝ったメニュー。 器も凝っており目でも楽しませてもらえました。 そして心のこもった暖かい接遇にお客様も大満足。 商談もうまく進み、また是非来たいとのことでご自分で予約をされて帰られました。 大事な接待の折りにはまた是非使いたいお店です!

  • リニューアルオープン。大手企業の会長社長から、元阪神の選手までたくさん花がでていますが、本当にひどい思いをしました。 まず、従業員が上手と下手をわかっておらず、客より先にこちらにものが出てくる始末。ドリンクに至っては、何一つ正確にでてきませんし、やたら時間がかかります。チェーン店の居酒屋のほうがよっぽどましです。挙げ句、これ等の惨状が女将に報告されていないのか、詫びのひとつもなく、「またお越しください」とのこと。怖くて二度と行けません。接待で利用しないほうが身のためです。皆さんお気をつけください。
