체험 상품 정보

Kyoto is famed for its shrines and temples, which are full of countless unique stories that will astonish you, making you fall in love with and connect yourself to their ancient history. I am deeply fascinated by the tales and traditions hidden among the streets and behind the sliding doors of Gion. The mysterious world of Geisha can seem exclusive and challenging to discover, so on my tour I will reveal the history, rituals, and nuances of the art-form as well as the entertainers who adhere to this traditional lifestyle, while simultaneously providing other interesting facts and a deeper understanding of Kyoto through the secret or small details that are often hard to notice for visitors and locals alike.

・Tour begin with Sanjo bridge, where you'll literally feel its history.

・In Gion, you’ll learn of the lives of Geisha. With luck, you might even spot one!

・Visiting local shrines and temples, from overlooked to popular ones, you'll learn their basics and unique stories.

・Tour ends at the oldest Buddhist tower. I'll take a great pic of you with it!

・I'll walk you guys to a local lunch post-tour (optional).

Only 6-7 guests to keep the experience intimate and the quality high.

Ken chose a subject of wide interest, one which is rarely dealt with by guides. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and delivered the goods. The tour was interactive. Ken asked us questions and then he asked us if we had questions. He took us to places we might not have ordinarily visited, which we found to be especially interesting. We loved his personality, energy, and passion.
