Drinking and eating in Kyoto is at least 20% more expensive than that of Osaka, according to me. But please do not worry about it with me. After strolling Gion area, I take you to at least 2 pubs, one is standing style and other with chairs. After the pubs, the guide escort you to the food hall where you can choose your dinner from 27 restaurants. Which pubs do I escort you? It is "black box"

Meeting Point

At your hotel or any place you prefer at downtown, Shijo Kawaramachi.

Gion area is one of the biggest maiko town in Kyoto. It is devided into 2 parts, south and north. You will visit both of them before we drink.

Most of Japanese pubs do not have English menu so it is very hard for foreign tourists to enter.

Ending Point

By 19:00 at downtown, Shijo Kawaramachi

What to Expect

Gion area is a must to visit with for it's uniqe tradition by maiko and geiko. About 250 maiko and geiko are working in Kyoto. Gion area is devided into tow parts, south with Kennin-ji temple and north with Shirakawa canal. In April, the road beside the canal is surronded by cherry blossoms. After the stroll in Gion area, we dive into the pubs at Shijo Kawaramchi crossing the river.

This tour is supposed in that you you will have dinner at around Shijo Kawaramachi.
