What to Expect

Kyoto had been the capital of Japan for about 1,200 years. This truly historical city has enchantments both of daytime and nighttime. You can feel the depth of this city only by walking in the nighttime. The image of the city is completely different between day and night. But walking in the nighttime is a bit tricky as it is sometimes too dark to see signs and posts to get one's bearings and know whereabouts.

But rest assured! I will guide you in the city's boisterous district as well as quiet and quaint area where you feel the ancient ambiance and sense its aesthetic beauty. The tour will finish up with a secret and special Japanese garden open in the nighttime known only by few.

“ Lovely and relaxing night tour ”

My family and I had a great time exploring Kyoto at night with Ryoji. My parents especially loved the garden Ryoji brought us to and we were able to walk around in both the well-known and unassuming spots in Kyoto at a leisurely pace. Would definitely recommend Ryoji to other travelers/tourists.

“ Thoughtful and fun guide ”

We enjoyed a fun day in Kyoto with Ryoji. He took us to some awesome places and which both ourselves and our two boys enjoyed! Ryoji was very thoughtful and brought us to a nice lunch spot with a wide selection of local specialities even the kids had many choices to choose from. Wish we had more time for him to show us around. Definitely a guide you should consider if you are traveling with young kids.

“ Kyoto at Night Tour with Ryoji ”

The Kyoto at Night tour with Ryoji was educational, as well as thought provoking. His overview of the spectacular hidden garden and canal was so intriguing. A highlight of the tour was our view of a maiko in the tea house, where she graciously permitted us to take a photo of her. Ryoji's night tour is historically evocative and atmospheric, even showing me some small shrines down unassuming alleys. Please seek him out if you want a truly memorable Kyoto experience!
