    Not only stroll around Gion, but to go to one of those places where you can be dressing an have people doing you a make up like a gueisha……..

    Unfortunely, the Namco Wonder Tower is no more. That building now houses an H&M store (which is a lot less fun of course). Fortunately, there’s still an amusement tower nearby that location with several floors of arcade games: Round 1 Kawaramachi. http://www.round1.co.jp/shop/tenpo/kyoto-kawaramachi-eng.html
