Gion comes to life as night falls and the geisha go out to entertain themselves at the tea house parties. A must-see in Kyoto is to take an early hike to Gion, the famous geisha district. As you slowly make your way through the narrow streets and hidden alleys of Gion, your guide will give you a fascinating insight into the history and traditions of the mysterious world of geisha.
This tour is a great way to get up close and personal with one of Japan’s best-known, yet least understood, traditional professions. During the tour, you may meet a geisha or maiko (geisha apprentice) rushing between dates at the teahouse, so be sure to bring your camera!
