What to expect

Take a walk down the three most famous geisha districts in Kyoto where you will pay a visit to establishments significant to the city's rich history. Stroll along the pathways of Gojyorakuen, once the most notorious red light district, before visiting Miyagawacho, known for geisha with talents for Japanese dance. The respectable geisha profession is often misrepresented - this tour aims to correct any misinformation. As you stroll the streets of Gion, your guide will explain all about what being a geisha means as you pass by boarding residences and entertainment houses. You may hear the faint tunes of geisha practising their musical skills or watch as a beautifully dressed geisha hurries over cobbled streets and ornate bridges to her next appointment. You'll also see the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto, also the birthplace of Japanese green tea, and a shrine with famous celebrities and geisha etched in the red posts.
