  • Overview

    Take a look, a real good look. It’s like you’ve stepped back in time. The wooden houses, the ambience, the feeling of history in the air. It's like looking into the very memories of the Geisha. This is Gion, Kyoto’s ancient cultural backyard. On this tour, you are going to celebrate the best of the culture with mouth-watering Kaiseki cuisine. You have been warned! This will be a culinary and cultural explosion. Not only are you going to walk through the streets of traditional tea houses. (See if you can spot a real Geisha!) You are also going to enjoy a multi-flavoured dinner, mixing global and local flavours to produce some of the most delicious dishes on the planet. Gion is the centre for Japanese arts and entertainment, so keep a proper lookout as you stroll through the wooden structures, you just never know what you might see. Culture, the arts and a dinner. All adds up to a unique experience in one of Japan’s most renowned and revered areas.
