Gion is the most authentic area that you can feel Kyoto's history and culture. On this tour, we'll visit two Geisha (We say "Geiko" in Kyoto, and Geiko's apprentice is "Maiko") districts. First one is beautiful scenic area, and the second one is quieter one. We walk and I explain about the history and culture of their world. Highlight of my tour is to see Geiko-san and Maiko-san on the street. (San is Ms. or Mr.) I can't guarantee you 100%, but we go to the area on the prime time, so that most of the time, we can see them walking on the street. When we saw them walking on the street, they're coming back from work, or going for work, so we should't interrupt them, but we can admire them from a distance. (If you want to talk with Maiko-san, I have other tour we can invite her to come to our private room at a bar : https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/831552) After we enjoyed authentic culture of Kyoto, we'll stop at my favorite bar. I researched several bars in the area, and I selected the best one. They have Japanese whisky, Kyoto jin, variety of cocktail, and sake. They have cozy atmosphere, and hard to find by yourself. While drinking our drinks, I can provide any tourist information about Kyoto and advise you on where to go for dinner. (for late hour tour, I recommend you to have dinner before the tour. Because usually shops and restaurants in Kyoto close around 9pm)
I’m Akari originally from Kyushu, south part of Japan. I studied in Tokyo, worked in Kyoto once, then I travled around the world by cruise ship as an international youth program staff, then I lived and worked in NL and PEI of Canada for two years and half and I came back to Kyoto. After the many years of travel, now I want to share my own culture with other people. So I teach Japanese online, and enjoys introducing beautiful Kyoto. For the last three years I have guided more than 500 tourists in Kyoto. I never get tired of living here because there are so many beautiful spots to check out. I've worked for a food company for a couple of years, and I also offer a Gion tour on a daily basis. During this experience, I'll show you my favorite and less-crowded parts of Gion.
Japanese whisky, Kyoto jin, variety of cocktail, sake or non-alcohol fruit juice.

Gion is one of the most popular areas in Kyoto and it's most famous for its geiko district—Kyoto dialect for geisha district. The area is filled with shops, restaurants and ochaya—teahouses, where Geiko and Maiko entertain. Gion obviously attracts lots of people, but during this experience, we'll take the roads less traveled.
