Customer Travel Tip: Rent a Bike! You can get one for 500JPY for a dy (9am-8pm) just over the river from Gion

Disliked: The key attractions are a good few kilometers away from each other...but the metro and JR lines are great to connect you and you can cycle too! There are a lot of cyclists...they weave in and out of the pedestrians a bit but are normally polite
