Walk in Gion and Experience Kyoto Traditions in English

Night-time Exploration of Gion: the Geisha District
Gion is one of Kyoto’s most traditional and unique districts and home to the culture of the Hanamachi, a world where the maiko and geiko remain alive and well. Though many tourists come to Gion, it is very hard to understand what is behind the beautiful facades.

An English-speaking professional guide will explain the history of Hanamachi, the life of maiko and geiko, and take participants on a journey along the backstreets of Gion.
