Located inside the Gion Kobu Kaburenjo Theater, a well-known hub of traditional Japanese culture, the Forever Museum of Contemporary Art, Gion-Kyoto (FMOCA) is a place that moves all your senses. Walking barefoot on tatami (smelling really good) you are in the middle of a world where time both stops and rushes into the future. Old Japanese theatre (with the beautiful stage) and modern art - isn’t it a dreamy combination? I was lucky enough to see Yayoi Kusama’s amazing exhibition there that lasts till the end of February 2019 (be quick!). What is more, the museum has a lovely garden that you can contemplate either from the inside or from the outside, with a red umbrella. Ah, what a place!

Beautiful design. Everything is spotless and clean. The staff is super friendly and the food is great. By far my favourite place to stay in Kyoto.

If you have that famous I-see-faces-everywhere thing, look twice. The Face House really exists in Kyoto, created by Kazumasa Yamashita in 1973-1974. Don't miss it - it's something really faceinating!
