Gion Walking Tour by Night
From $9 USD – 1 day activity
Highlights:
Gion is Kyoto’s most traditional district where the culture of Kagai, the world of maiko and geiko is still alive. Though many tourists come to Gion, it can be difficult to grasp the magnitude and beauty of Gion completely. Your guide will explain the history of Kagai, the lives of maiko and geiko and even take you to the backstreets of Gion. Walk with a knowledgeable, licensed English-speaking guide and discover the depths of the Old Capital, Kyoto.

Join one of the most popular walking tours conducted by licensed English-speaking guides in Japan with approximately 5000 guests a year.

The tour begins at the meeting point, Izutsu Yatsuhashi, a pastry shop nicknamed "Kitaza" that stands near the Shijo Bridge.

During this 100 minute-tour, your guide will lead you to the hidden street of the Geisha district and take you for a walk down the classic cobblestone streets next to the Shirakawa River, the scenery of which was featured in the novel and movie, "Memoirs of a Geisha."

While you walk along this beautiful stream, the guide will also tell you the history of geisha and give you a detailed explanation in regards to their kimono, hairstyle, traditional rules and how their daily life is like.


Although there is no guarantee, during the walking tour, guests will often encounter geisha walking the streets. Get ready to learn everything there is to know about world of the maiko and geiko!
