Kyoto Ice Cream: Gion Kinana – Kinako Ice Cream

Kyoto Ice Cream: Gion Kinana – Kinako Ice Cream
This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series Do Not Miss
Gion Kinana’s fresh-made kinako ice cream, more cream than ice, is the best Japanese ice cream that I have had. Their parfaits are completely amazing too. Kinana is located in Gion, just off of Hanamikoji Street, one of Kyoto’s most scenic and historic neighborhoods. I liked Kinana…

Gion Hatanaka Maiko Dinner Show Review

I noticed some search access recently for the fake maiko dinner show (Kyoto Cuisine and Maiko Evening) at Hatanaka Ryokan in Gion. I was invited to review it by Hatanaka and it was horrible. I wrote a detailed critical review but Miwa used to work there so I haven’t posted it yet. Unprofessional Production
The maiko are cute but the…
