Beautiful Magical Tranquil Night Tour - made by our guide who steered us thru the quiet secluded streets & lanes of Gion...& timed it so we had the best probability of spotting a "Geisha" and we did! The deserted laneways with the stories behind the doors made the experience surreal. Takaaki's introduction of the history & customs behind the "Geiko & Maiko" (is Geisha & Geisha trainee) community was delightful! Thank you Takaaki.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Catherina! Yes! When night falls, Gion and the adjoining areas transform into a magical wonderland. I’m happy that all of you enjoyed the tour:)
