Overview

Beautiful Gion and Kamogawa
Our Kyoto Night Food Tour through Gion and Shirakawa is a celebration of Japanese traditional culture and Kaiseki cuisine, a multi-course, multi-flavored Japanese dinner that flawlessly mixes global and local flavors to produce some of the most delicious dishes on the planet. This is our most luxurious tour.

What to Expect

Kyoto is a magical place. Visitors can be transported back in time to Japan’s historical past. Starting near famous Yasaka Shrine you will stroll with your guide along the local streets of Gion.

Gion is the most prominent traditional entertainment district and Kyoto’s center of Japanese arts. Gion is a maze of old wooden buildings, teahouses and very exclusive Japanese restaurants, mostly available by invitation only. Your guide will tell you stories about this very exquisite part of Kyoto along the way. You will also explore the gorgeous Shirakawa neighborhood. You will have the chance to whet your appetite with a special Kyoto treat as you wander. Learn about the life of Kyoto’s famous Geisha (Maiko and Geiko) This area is simply impossible to describe- a must-see for yourself experience.

At the end of our walking tour we will sit down to enjoy a 10 course kaiseki meal, where you will be able to try some of Kyoto’s freshest food. Kaiseki generally means a meal incorporating a combination of seasonal ingredients meticulously prepared so all the flavors blend harmoniously. A visit in Kyoto is never complete without trying a Kaiseki meal. Enjoy this three hour tour and end it with this very special dinner! We want this moment of your life to be a memory you will never forget– so we will reserve the details for those who join the tour. But rest assured we have organized a truly amazing meal for you!
