  • Overview

    Where shall we start? An evening stroll, washing down the memories with a creative cocktail, sampling some stunning local sake and wonderful whisky? Accompanied by some delicious local snacks? Well, you are in Kyoto, Japan, home to Sake and some of the finest whisky on the planet. If this is what you call ‘a night out’, then this tour is for you. A nighttime stroll in the historic regions of Gion and Pontocho. Home to Kyoto’s nightlife scene. Take a stroll and enjoy the sights and find out about the historic area, perhaps you’ll even spot a Maiko or Geiko (that’s a geisha) - for this is the area they work. You’ll head down alleys, and narrow backstreets, sample local snacks and of course the ‘said’ drinks. Well, it wouldn’t be right without them, would it!? Kyoto isn’t just about beautiful temples, it’s about much, much more. Drink to that!
