Tour Details:

Enjoy a walking tour Pontocho, one of Kyoto’s most charming and historical areas.  Travel back in time to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes in this rustic area of Kyoto.  With the streets lined with geiko houses and machiyas (teahouses), this street is one of Kyoto’s geisha districts where you might have a chance of catching a glimpse of them scampering between appointments in their zori sandals and gorgeous kimonos.

After this, you will head to a local Shabu Shabu restaurant where you will enjoy a scrumptious array of vegetables, appetizers and beef.  Your guide will explain to you everything you need to know about Kyoto food and culture while you eat until you cannot eat anymore!

The second stop of the tour is a standing bar izakaya where you will enjoy a drink and appetizer as you immerse yourself with the locals of Kyoto.

Finish of the tour with a dessert from a family owned stored that’s been making these sweet delights for the last 30 years. 

Learn everything about Kyoto food.  Have fun beyond the temples and other Kyoto cultural things and ask your guide about the history and cultural surrounding the food of Kyoto!
