Full description
Meet your guide at the Izumo no Okuni statue at Gion Shijo Station, then set off for a tasty 3-hour tour of local restaurants and street food vendors. The tour has been specially designed for you to experience the most authentic side of Kyoto and takes you to places that are normally hard to find for tourists. Throughout the night your guide is on hand to advise what you should order and how to order. To start, we'll walk around the Gion area and head to the first restaurant. On the streets, we'll see many old Kyoto-style buildings with machiya architecture, as well as tea houses. At the first location, we'll enjoy Kyoto vegetables or meats with simple seasoning in order to taste the ingredient's pure flavors. You can enjoy Japanese sake made in Kyoto, too! At the second cafe, we'll enjoy dessert & coffee!(You can order food and alcohol drink instead of the dessert, too.) Any type of traveler can enjoy this food tour, whether you're traveling with family, friends, or you're a solo traveler. Don't worry if you don't know what to eat or drink. Our guide will help you order and will explain everything! Let's try local food that you can only find in Kyoto, and explore the backstreets of this beautiful city with our local guide!
