Чем вы займетесь

On foot, we explore Gion, one of Kyoto’s most captivating areas. During our 2.5 hour tour, we walk through a couple of the geisha districts and I share personal stories of my interactions with geisha, beginning with apprentice geisha-maiko, all the way up to mama-san or heads of houses, customers etc. I break it down the whole Geisha world into simple terms, plus give you insider tips on how to tell real geisha apart from other people wearing kimono.

While I can't guarantee you'll see maiko or geisha, my tour gives you the best chance of seeing one along our walk.

After our walk, I'll take you to an Izakaya (Japanese style pub/restaurant), only an insider like myself would know where you can experience Gion like a local.

Greg was a fantastic guide for my family's trip to Kyoto. Really nice chap, who clearly has significant knowledge and interest on Japanese culture and of course the Geisha. We were lucky to see a few Geisha on our trip, and Greg knew where we should head to have the best chance of seeing them. The pace was good, and he answered our questions with detail. We learned so much on the tour, I'd definitely recommend Greg if you want to know more about Japanese culture and especially Geishas.

We have been to Gion a few times but only this time, thanks to Greg we managed to have a deeper understanding of Geishas and Maikos and their almost mysterious culture. Greg was genuinely a true expert in this topic and I believe everyone will have a new perspective of Gion, Geishas and even Japan when they sign up for this tour. Thank you Greg!

We were very keen to know more about geishas and maikos and so chose this tour when airbnb suggested it. And we were so glad to have undertaken this tour. Greg gave us a detailed insight into the history of geishas (and also kabuki) through the ages. We visited the different districts of geishas. We were lucky to spot a few maikos and a geisha as they were returning to their quarters after a performance. We saw the dormitories where maikos are trained, the sign boards which showed how many maikos were resident at a dorm. We had visited the area on our own previously but had cursorily passed though the area. But during this tour, we noted outlets selling accessories and footwear for geishas and maikos, we saw the hairdressing saloon specially for them, we saw pictures and videos, heard interesting trivia which made our understanding into Japanese cultural history more insightful . We also tasted traditional Japanese sweets, which we may not have done on our own. Or maybe we would have eaten them but would not have known that these sweets are traditional sweets which travellers had along with tea during their breaks since the time people travelled on foot. We are very delighted with our trip with Greg and it summed up why we enjoy doing small tours which gives us a special insight into a place or event.
