Our stay at Tanaka-ya was very enjoyable! Easy to find and great ambiance! Tucked away on a narrow Japanese street, you really have the feeling of an authentic Gion experience. Almost like traveling back in time. We saw maiko in the street almost right as we arrived, and then practically every day subsequent. We had three people in a three person room, which was very spacious. Traditional Japanese bedding very comfortable and the owner, Tamie-san is very kind and welcoming. Definitely recommend.
