Kyoto by Night
Kyoto is a charismatic city and really comes into its own in the evening. With a local resident, you will explore some of the charming lantern-lit back streets as you discover the food and drink that Kyotoites like to enjoy after the sun goes down.
This evening, you will be met at your hotel by a local Kyoto resident who will help escort you to one of their favourite districts of the city to explore the tiny bars and restaurants that bring life to the city after dark.
There are countless back streets and ancient paths around the city that come alive in the evening. Lit by colourful lanterns and full of the sounds and smells of fresh cooking and local customers, these are where the Kyoto residents come after a hard day of work and are fascinating places to explore.
Your guide will pick out a casual dinner and dink, there are always plenty of options for all tastes, some of the small restaurants will even encourage you to try your hand in the kitchen.
You are more than welcome to purchase more food and drink along the tour, and on its conclusion, your guide will assist in arranging a taxi back to your hotel, or perhaps more importantly point you I the right direction of more refreshments.
