What to Expect

One of my visitors from abroad said to me, " If you want to know the culture of the country, tasting and learning about the food is the best way".

Nishiki food market is called the kitchen of Kyoto's citizens. Walking through the market with a guide, having the food explained and trying samples will be much more interesting than visiting the market alone!
In addition, this tour takes you to a traditional tea shop where you can enjoy learning how to make Japanese tea usually drunk at home, as well as to a traditional Kyoto house which used to be a sake brewery.
If you are more interested in a traditional tea ceremony than enjoying tea at a tea shop, you can change the itinerary from the tea shop to a tea ceremony, though an additional charge is required.
Let's enjoy a 4 hour food culture encounter!!

“ A Pleasant Guide who has a good sense of humour ”

Tomoko has a good command of the English Language and Japanese history.She was accomodating towards our request for the tour and choice of lunch. Due to the great distance between each tourist site in Kyoto, we found that we spent alot of time travelling on the bus/train. Although that is an experience in itself , it took up the bulk of the time. Tomoko took care to assist us at the ticket booths and made sure we were comfortable on the pubic transport. It was easy to talk to her. On hindsight, we should have requested for the tours to be much earlier so that we could hear her explanations without the noise of the crowd drowning her voice and also to take better photos. Thank you Tomoko.

“ Professional and informative tour guides ”

The night Gion tour was the best and very interesting. details of history of temples and Garden areas interesting. Pleasant and very accomodating. Be aware the total cost of tour is higher if guide travels with you anywhere except a walking tour. Our evening tour was a fixed price however we used our JR passes for Nara and had been asked by guide to pay for her transportation. It was a little on the spot as I thought this was included in her tour price her own transportation. in our case it was close to 20.00 U.S. higher we paid her directly as we had to pay for all her transportation not just the local bus we all took while touring outside of our JR passes. She was very very helpful in helping us make reservations back on our bullit train not realizing it was a holiday. Very satisfied. .
