Experience Details
Explore Kyoto’s famed Gion district alongside a guide who knows these streets like the back of his hand. Join Ken as he shares the history, culture, and customs of Gion with you as you wander the cobblestone streets. After you’ve worked up an appetite, a special lunch and performance awaits… A geisha show! Kyoto, once the imperial capital of Japan, radiates an air of refinement and cultural significance. Gion, a district within Kyoto, transports visitors to a world steeped in geisha culture and traditional elegance. The streets are lined with wooden machiya houses adorned with lanterns, creating an enchanting atmosphere that harks back to the past. Gion is synonymous with geisha culture, where the graceful artistry of geiko (Kyoto dialect for geisha) and maiko (apprentice geisha) thrives. These skilled performers mesmerize with their refined dance, music, and conversation. It’s here, during this experience, that you’ll be transported into the world of these skilled artists. Their dances, often accompanied by traditional instruments, tell stories of history and mythology. The intricate kimonos, delicate movements, and the mastery of conversation create an experience that's both elegant and enthralling. After touring the key sites and unmissable landmarks of Gion, stop for a once-in-a-lifetime lunch accompanied by a geisha show. Savor either tempura, sushi, or karaage (fried chicken) with miso soup, rice, and a side dish.
