Qué harás

Gion is the most authentic area that you can feel Kyoto's history and culture.
On this tour, we'll visit two Geisha (We say "Geiko" in Kyoto, and Geiko's apprentice is "Maiko") districts. First one is beautiful scenic area, and the second one is quieter one. We walk and I explain about the history and culture of their world.

Highlight of my tour is to see Geiko-san and Maiko-san on the street. (San is Ms. or Mr.) I can't guarantee you 100%, but we go to the area on the prime time, so that most of the time, we can see them walking on the street. When we saw them walking on the street, they're coming back from work, or going for work, so we should't interrupt them, but we can admire them from a distance.
(If you want to talk with Maiko-san, I have other tour we can invite her to come to our private room at a bar : https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/831552)

After we enjoyed authentic culture of Kyoto, we'll stop at my favorite bar. I researched several bars in the area, and I selected the best one. They have Japanese whisky, Kyoto jin, variety of cocktail, and sake. They have cozy atmosphere, and hard to find by yourself.

While drinking our drinks, I can provide any tourist information about Kyoto and advise you on where to go for dinner. (for late hour tour, I recommend you to have dinner before the tour. Because usually shops and restaurants in Kyoto close around 9pm)

I’m Akari originally from Kyushu, south part of Japan. I studied in Tokyo, worked in Kyoto once, then I travled around the world by cruise ship as an international youth program staff, then I lived and worked in NL and PEI of Canada for two years and half and I came back to Kyoto.

After the many years of travel, now I want to share my own culture with other people. So I teach Japanese online, and enjoys introducing beautiful Kyoto.
For the last three years I have guided more than 500 tourists in Kyoto. I never get tired of living here because there are so many beautiful spots to check out.

I've worked for a food company for a couple of years, and I also offer a Gion tour on a daily basis. During this experience, I'll show you my favorite and less-crowded parts of Gion.

Donde estarás

Gion is one of the most popular areas in Kyoto and it's most famous for its geiko district—Kyoto dialect for geisha district. The area is filled with shops, restaurants and ochaya—teahouses, where Geiko and Maiko entertain. Gion obviously attracts lots of people, but during this experience, we'll take the roads less traveled.

This was such a fun tour and Akari was a great host! She took us to some beautiful areas and taught us so much about the history and culture!! We loved ending the night having a drink with her at a local bar!!

Akari showed us the inner trails of the geisha and it was very informative. It was a pity it rained but thank God that Akari was very familiar and well prepared. The bar was also very classy. This experience really gave us insights on the geisha journeys and made Kyoto felt special

This was a wonderful experience. Akari made us feel as though we were truly expecting the Gion with an expert perspective. In addition to an interesting and education walk through one of Kyoto’s most beautiful districts, we actually ended up seeing a handful of geiko and maiko (geisha). The whole experience was so special and I would highly recommend it.

This was an incredible experience! I was the only one who booked my evening, and Akari really went out of her way to personalize it for me. I left feeling really overjoyed and full of new insight 😄

Akari is super sweet and informative. The tour includes a lot of information on maikos and geikos. She walks you through different areas and gives a lot of information on Kyoto in general. I thought she was really kind and it was nice to learn about the culture through the perspective of a local. Good value and lovely company. Thanks Akari!

Really loved this walking tour with Akari. She has a beautiful personality and has a great understanding as well as insight about the area. We were super lucky and got to see Geiko’s and Maiko’s which was an extra added bonus! Akari gave us lots of awesome information and we were free to ask questions about the Japanese culture. I would definitely recommend! The Sake at the end was also mighty tasty!
