When night fall on the city, the image of the Gion district changes dramatically.
You can not fully experience Kyoto if you do not stroll in Gion at night.
We will walk through beautifully lit stone-paved streets where geisha culture prevails.
I am convinced this tour will offer you a memorable 1 hour that you will never forget.
And I gladly accept one person.

Important

Buses conveniently stop right at tourist sites, but during the peak seasons , they get very crowded. So I suggest we use the subway or take a taxi. That will take us to our destinations more smoothly.

Please make sure to wear comfortable shoes.

If it rains, we will be able to change the starting time.
But I am willing to tailor the tour to your needs.
So please feel free to ask me anything.

“ A great walk through Southern Higashiyama in Kyoto ”

Highly recommend hiring Yuriko as a private tour guide! Working within a time constraint and unsure of how best to manage our expectations (with so little time and so much to see), Yuriko patiently helped us plan a perfect 1/2 day tour prior to our arrival. We were able to see the sights most important to us and move at our own pace. Yuriko used her teaching skills to fill in the blanks, keep us on track, show us some areas of interest away from the crowds and ultimately get us to our final destination on time! It was a wonderful, enlightening day full of memories we will forever cherish! Thanks again Yuriko!

Yuriko:

Dear Susan Thank you very much for your kind review ! It was a great honor to show you around beautiful Kyoto. I was impressed with the fact that you had a deep interest and respect for Japanese culture. We had such a wonderful time walking down stone-paved streets and talking about so many topics !! Thanks again for choosing me as your guide. That was a memorable 1/2 day I would never forget. Many thanks Yuriko

“ Kyoto 2019 ”

Yuriko was absolutely incredible. She was very organized during every step of the process. She communicated frequently, quickly and clearly throughout the entire process. She made sure that we were able to explore the areas that we were interested in. I was very worried because we were traveling with 4 young children. She was very patient and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make everything easier for us. I would highly recommend Yuriko if you are coming to Japan with a family or a small group. We really wanted to ride Rickshaws and wear Kimono. She made it all happen for us. We will cherish the memories for a very long time. Thank you! Thank you!

Yuriko:

Dear Michael Thank you very much for your wonderful review !! I am really happy you enjoyed riding rickshaw, wearing kimonos, eating local foods and visiting cultural sites. And how cheerful and pretty your daughters are !! Many thanks for choosing me as your guide and I had really fun spending 2 days with you all. I will cherish the memories for a very long time, too. Hope to see you all again !! Best regards Yuriko
