Overview

Kyoto transforms into its most magical as dusk falls - so with a Local Host to navigate, explore the tiny back alleys of the old district and experience the urban buzz of the most modern parts of the city. Ancient tradition blends with contemporary culture in this city, and the best time experience this captivating mix is after dark! Explore the enchanting wooden alleyways lit with traditional paper lanterns in the historic Gion district and the picturesque streets of old Pontocho, where if youre lucky you might spot one of the beautiful Geishas on their way back from work. Then discover where sacred shrines sit hidden in the most cosmopolitan shopping areas and share some small dishes and beers with your local in a traditional izakaya or tachinomiya!

Know More about this tour

Join a like-minded Local Host to immerse yourself in the most enchanting districts in Kyoto as they come to life as night falls, exploring the historic old quarter and modern areas where youll find beautiful shrines that have stood for centuries. Even in the most modern districts, historic shrines are still standing, nestled between brightly lit modern shops - and even though they may be closed, these Shinto shrines are beautifully lit by lanterns and make for perfect photos. Wander through Gion, the historic Geisha district where you can get a little lost in the narrow streets and appreciate the tradition and beauty of the classic architecture while the area is lit with the glow of paper lanterns - you may even see elegant geiko and meiko floating through the alleyways. Let your Local Host take you to their favourite izakaya, the drinking houses where locals gather after work to share a few drinks and delicious bar food staples like gyoza and yakitori, then head to a Tachinomiya, the street-side bars where locals drink standing up as there are no chairs! Get to know your Local Host over the evening, and they can recommend other spots in the city that will fascinate you, and recommend shrines, izakaya, shopping districts or places to eat for the rest of your trip so you can continue to see the city through a local lens.
