Kami-Shichiken
Kamishichiken is the oldest of five entertainment districts called Hanamachi in Kyoto, which was built in Muromachi Era more than 500 years ago. Currently, Kamishichiken which is much smaller than Gion has 10’s Ochaya, traditional banquets houses enjoying with Maiko and Geiko (Geisha is called “Geiko” in Kyoto). So you can feel a quiet Hanamachi atmosphere walking the streets. No one can visit Ochaya without referral of member. However, visitors can look Maiko and Geiko at close, take pictures and enjoy conversation, at the beer garden of Kamishichiken Kaburenjo in summer.
