About the tour

Gion, Kyoto is well-known for Geishas (the traditional female artists), charming architecture, and beautiful stone-paved streets along the river. We'll begin at the most photographed path and bridge in Kyoto where a photographer shoots wedding couples dressed in Kimonos (Japanese ethnic clothing) every morning. Then, visit a local holy place where Geishas pray to the God of the performing arts, and learn Shinto rituals and traditions, a part of Japanese native religion. Even see the Geisha district and learn both the light side and dark side of the history of Geishas and their lifestyle.
