Get an in-depth, exclusive look at Japan's geisha culture in Kyoto. Late this afternoon join a guide for a walking tour of Gion, Kyoto's geisha district, followed by a truly special dinner with a maiko!

Start with an introduction, listening as the guide explains about geiko, the local name for Kyoto's geisha, and their maiko, or apprentices. Then explore the atmospheric streets, walking past local shops and restaurants on the way to Yasaka Shrine. From here continue to Hanami-koji where lavish tea shops line the roadside.

After the walking tour, enter a local restaurant for a memorable dinner in the company of a maiko. Dine on a traditional multi-course meal called kaiseki ryori.
