Geisha night tour of Gion

2 to 3 hrs

On this tour of Kyoto at night you’ll dive into the deeply traditional Gion 祇園 district which serves as both the historic home and beating heart of geisha Japan. In the company of a local Kyoto resident and expert on Japan, enjoy the enchanting nightlife of Gion, Kyoto’s historic geisha district.

As the sun sets, the streets come to life with beautifully illuminated lanterns, elegant restaurants, charming bars, and traditional teahouses. This tour is fantastic for exploring traditional daily life in Kyoto; from the historic housing structures, shrines, and temples, to the role of geishas and kabuki in Japan’s cultural history. May even get to catch a glimpse of a geiko or maiko (apprentice geiko) on their way to entertain guests.
