Exploring Kyoto after dark is a truly magical experience. Watch the city come alive as the sun sets and take to the quaint and charming streets with a knowledgeable local guide in tow. Take in the beautiful fusion of the traditional and the contemporary as the argon lights are juxtaposed with paper lanterns, age-old shrines squeeze into busy shopping streets, and aged wood is festooned with modern street art.
Keep your eyes peeled for a Geiko in the old quarter as you stroll through the back streets of Gion, visit some of the less touristy areas of Kyoto, admire the wooden walls and lanterns of Yasaka Shrine, spend time in bustling Karasuma’s tachinomi and indulge your tastebuds with some savoury local snacks. Brace yourself for an exciting evening in town!
