4.20.09 Gion

The old Kabuki Theater

Bianca and I took a quick trip to the Gion district in Kyoto - this is where the geishas used to be (like in Memoirs of a Geisha) - we saw a couple but they walk so quickly that it was hard to take a picture. The architecture in this area was completely bizarre, some random Chicago-looking new things, and mixed in a couple blocks over were some Heian period houses... Also the old Kabuki theater. There was also a small red light district but we didn't take any pictures :)
