We will visit small shops at an old shopping street where used to be called as "Kitchen at the East of Kyoto." At this place, you can enjoy trying small snacks and chatting with shop owners. After looking the shopping street, we pass beautiful stone bridge that is only 60 cm wide. Many movies have been taken at here and I think you will enjoy taking photo. We go narrow streets and on the way I will tell you interesting stories about the town such as the meaning of little statutes standing at corners of the city everywhere and tiny statutes you find on the roof of some houses. We also have a look inside of traditional Kyoto style house (machiya) which is not easy to enter by yourself. It is lovely small house. I am sure you will be surprised to see very steep steps and low-ceilings of the house. Depending on the weather, we might change the route. If it is very hot or heavily raining, we might spend more time at the shopping street with arcade. So, please don’t worry if you join the tour during very hot summer or rainy season too. Also, because I want you to enjoy each season, I might take you to local festivals or add different spots to visit along the way.
Loving Kyoto too much, I moved here. After a while, I realized that it is not easy to have opportunity to know lifestyle and culture of the locals as it is. So, I started coordinating cultural events and walking tours in 2009, mainly for international students. We will meet at “Shirakawa” area that is close from the center of Kyoto such as Gion. It remains undeveloped as touristic spots and it is great spots to feel lifestyle in Kyoto. I am working here so I can take you spots and shops loved by locals and tell you interesting stories! Please enjoy the city of Kyoto from view of locals.
Snack It includes small portion of sweets, drink, and snacks to try. Contents might differ for each tour.
