6th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Dining in Gion

Strolling through Kyoto's Gion district, Bratosin looked up and saw the brightly lit restaurant. He felt as if he were peering into a dollhouse carefully arranged with figures inside. "I've looked at this restaurant as the perfect representation of the mixture of traditional and modern, which is present everywhere in Kyoto," he says.
