Your walking tour of Japan’s old capital begins by meeting at the Gion Omoide Museum. Explore Gion, which is famous for being the geisha district of Kyoto. During the tour, your guide points out locations that were featured in the book and movie 'Memoirs of a Geisha.'
As you walk down cobbled streets and past a beautiful stream, hear stories of Kyoto’s ancient past. Your guide educates you on the history of geisha—from their kimonos and hairstyles to rules and daily rituals. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a geisha on the street.
For a more in-depth experience, upgrade to a longer, private tour where you visit three Geisha areas in total—Gion, Pontocho, and Miyagawacho.
