We are here to help you discover new things, places and experiences in Gion.
Your walking guided tour begins by meeting at the Tatsumi Daimyojin Shrine, the center of Gion. You’ll explore Gion, which is famous for being the geisha district of Kyoto. During the tour, your guide will show you the history and culture of geisha—from their kimonos and hairstyles to rules and daily rituals.

The meeting place difficult to find as temple not listed on google maps. Better to say meet at the Tatsumi Bridge. The description given said "During the tour, your guide will show you the history and culture of geisha—from their kimonos and hairstyles to rules and daily rituals. " Our guide did not even mention geisha's until one person in the group asked and then the information was very limited. A geisha walked past us and he didn't even point her out so most of the group missed seeing her. As to learn about geisha's was the main reason for our booking the tour, we were extremely disappointed with the whole experience.

The city was nice and I think with a different guide it would have been a good tour. Unfortunately our guide was more interested in us taking pictures for her proof of tour. She didn’t stay aware of where the group was and it was a small group of 4. She was very nice and spoke clear English but I would have preferred a different guide.

Our guide Toshi was very knowledgeable and sweet. She really worked hard to make the tour a wonderful experience for us to always cherish . I highly recommend Toshi to anyone coming to Kyoto looking for the best tour they can get.
