Kyoto is famed for its shrines and temples, which are full of countless unique stories that will astonish you, making you fall in love with and connect yourself to their ancient history. I am deeply fascinated by the tales and traditions hidden among the streets and behind the sliding doors of Gion. The mysterious world of Geisha can seem exclusive and challenging to discover, so on my tour I will reveal the history, rituals, and nuances of the art-form as well as the entertainers who adhere to this traditional lifestyle, while simultaneously providing other interesting facts and a deeper understanding of Kyoto through the secret or small details that are often hard to notice for visitors and locals alike.

・Tour begins right in front of Statue of Izumo no Okuni, she originated Kabuki theatre and inspired Geisha culture.
・In Gion, you’ll learn of the lives of Geisha. With luck, you might even spot one!
・Visiting local shrines and temples, from overlooked to popular ones, you'll learn their basics and unique stories.
・Tour ends at the oldest Buddhist tower. I'll take a great pic of you with it!

Dear travelers!
I'm Ken. I'm a professional guide. I've been deeply fascinated by the city, its history, and its culture. I'm here to help you discover new things, places and experiences. Kyoto has a lot of stories to tell, especially in the old geisha districts, shrines and temples hold unique stories that will astonish you, that you'll fall in love with, and that will connect you to the history.

Also I am a founder of a local tour agency, "Ken's Tours Kyoto", which is located in the eastern Kyoto. I've been guiding over 3000 clients just for 3 years since 2016. Fortunately 99% of my clients gave me 5 stars and now I have over 1100 of 5 star reviews on Airbnb and TripAdvisor. I've been ranked and awarded as a guide in the Japan's top 30 on TripAdvisor. Also working as a fixer in Kyoto for shooting PV, movie, TV drama.

Ken was very knowledgeable. It was a great experience walking through the streets of Gion with him as he explained the historical significance of all the things around. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to know more about the history of Gion.

Ken is a great guide for the Geisha culture and history-focused tour. Time flies when you walk with Ken around some of the most historic and charming places in Kyoto. He has deep knowledge, good sense of humour, very easygoing attitude, and he can manage your time worth and well. I’ve been to Kyoto many times and this time I chose Ken and I felt it was the best decision I made for this trip. If you can wake up early and learn about Kyoto beyond just eating ramen and sushi, Ken is the one to be with!
