What to expect

Gion, the centuries-old entertainment district, truly comes alive at night. Walk through the old tea house district, learn about the customs of the geisha and apprentice maiko and discover this hidden world. You might even get the chance to see a few of the girls in full costume rushing off to an appointment.

Walking through these narrow streets with the lanterns flickering on the wooden buildings you will feel the charm of this special place. Wandering along these cobbled streets, your guide will also take you to some places with a truly remarkable atmosphere. A night visit to a shrine, a full pagoda all lit up and other places of historic importance will leave an impression on you that you will never forget.

After the walking tour, you will experience a meal at a local "izakaya" pub. Enjoy tapas-style dishes with lots to choose from. Salads, grilled meats, karaage chicken, tempura, sashimi, and more. Sample many kinds of local specialties with your guide there to help you choose some light dishes to share.
