Kyoto Private Night Tour: From Gion District To Old Pontocho, 100% Personalized

Kyoto Private Night Tour: From Gion District To Old Pontocho, 100% Personalized

Join one of our hosts to explore Kyoto after dark. Amble through the wooden alleyways of historic Gion and see the picturesque streets of old Pontocho. Discover sacred shrines hidden in cosmopolitan shopping areas and share small dishes and beers with your host in a traditional izakaya or tachinomiya (standing bar). Kyoto after dark is more a feeling than a place, and with your host by your side, you’ll tap right into that.

Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Pass By: Hanamikoji Street, Higashiyama-Ku, Kyoto Kyoto Prefecture

Hanamikoji Street is the main hanamachi street of Gion-Kōbu in Kyoto. The machiya (traditional Kyoto’s houses) lning proudly along this small cobbled road are wonderfully preserved treasures. And passing by at dusk, may get you the chance to catch the glimpse of a geisha leaving a tea house (ochaya). An appearance as magical as it is furtive.

Pontocho Alley is considered to be the most beautiful street in Kyoto. It’s lined with traditional shops and restaurants, and no cars, modern buildings or gaudy signs are allowed.

Pass By: Kamogawa River, Kyoto Kyoto Prefecture

It is a long stretch of river running from the Kyoto Basin down south. This is the perfect spot to enjoy the sound of the river flowing and for a breath of fresh air; what better than sit on the bank of the river to relax with a drink in your hand -like locals fancy to do- 
During the summer, restaurants open their balconies looking out onto the river.
