Overview
This is THE tour to get a local's experience of Kyoto’s best street food and culture! Our nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual guides can help you efficiently enjoy a one-day tour of Kyoto. Meet your guide at your hotel to start your day, then begin the tour with a possible trip to the 400m long Nishiki Market, nicknamed “Kyoto’s Kitchen”, where over 130 food shops and stalls beckon your taste buds. Learn about Kyoto's food culture and history through the variety of unique dishes and goods available. Give your appetite a break at the nearby Gion district, famous as the geisha district of Kyoto. Your guide will introduce you to the history and culture of geisha—from their kimonos and hairstyles to the rules and rituals of their daily lives. Our guides will customize a four-hour tour in detail according to your interests. We want to arrange a tour that’s best for you! Note*:The Nationally-licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government.
