After lunch, head to Gion which is about 6 kms from the shrine, the only place known for Geisha spotting. One thing, in Japan they are not called Geisha, they are called Geiko. You can catch a glimpse of Geisha hopping to their appointments. They are elusive and if you are not able to see them here, you will have to buy special tickets for an actual Geisha show. Gion has Japanese houses and is an old soul where there are high chances you can spot Geisha.
