Experience Details
The definition of elegance, this tour of Kyoto at night will introduce you to Gion, Kyoto’s geisha district, a hub of traditional Japanese arts and historic Japanese teahouses. Walking down the shining cobbled streets and little alleyways of Gion, you’ll feel immersed in the traditional culture of Kyoto. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll even catch a glimpse of a geisha or maiko shuffling down the paved road in their wooden geta sandals. While you work up an appetite, exploring the stunning Shirakawa area, you’ll learn all about the culture and history of Kyoto, including the role of geisha, feeling like you’ve been tossed back in time amid the classic Japanese architecture and serene teahouses. The three-hour tour of Kyoto at night will conclude in with a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience, a Kaiseki dinner. A Japanese multi-course Kaiseki meal is a sumptuous and elegant affair, featuring a stream of gorgeously-plated dishes, one after another, showing off the regional seasonal produce of Kyoto. As Kyoto is known as the birthplace of Kaiseki cuisine in Japan, there’s no better place to indulge in this decadent 10-course meal.

Experience Location
Gion is the traditional entertainment center of Kyoto, where arts like kabuki theater, tea ceremony, and flower arrangement have flourished for hundreds of years. Gion is one of five hanamachi (geiko or geisha communities) in Kyoto. Some of the most gorgeous traditional tea houses are also in Gion, and geisha can be seen moving between ochaya tea houses, on their way to a performance. During sakura season, maiko and geiko perform at the Miyako Odori, one of the largest annual spring shows. But all year round, Shirakawa Dori (Shirakawa Street) is a stunning and timeless sight.
