Start the evening in style by participating in a tea ceremony and having dinner at a traditional Japanese inn. The meal, a simple, traditional, Zen-style spread, is well thought out to provide perfectly balanced nutrition. After dinner, take in Gion’s unique atmosphere by taking a stroll down its preserved district’s back streets. At the Gion Corner, enjoy watching tea ceremonies, traditional dancing, music, and performances. You may even be lucky enough to see a Maiko!

I brought a small team of people from across Asia, India, Australasia, and the USA to Kyoto; and we all attended this as a team event. It was excellent. The initial cultural show was a bit dry in parts (although it was a helpful insight into Japanese culture and arts); but the rest of the tour was fabulous, and provides... More

Then we walked through the beautiful gion district and only caught a glimpse of one maiko. The guide was calling her to stop, but she ran away lol. Too... More

We were lucky enough to see a few walking through the lane ways. Followed by the best vegetarian meal ever. We're shown through the Buddhist shrine, Japanese Garden, then took part in a tea ceremony, all... More
