WELLNESS: Visit Gion’s Healing Hall

After a long day temple-hopping in Kyoto, a pit-stop at Gion district’s famous ‘healing hall’, Hiyoshido East, for a traditional massage is the perfect way to unwind. Nestled amongst the backstreets of Kyoto’s historic Gion district, Hiyoshido have been offering authentic Japanese shiatsu massages for almost a hundred years. Housed in a traditional wooden machiya house and popular amongst work-weary chefs and geisha, there’s no better way to relax than an hour spent stretched out on Hiyoshido’s heated tatami floor.

Available until 1am, bookings are taken over the phone, and if your feet won’t carry you an inch further, therapists are on hand to visit you in your hotel room.
