  • 17:30 Gion Stroll
    Explore one of Kyoto's famous "flower districts" (entertainment and nightlife areas). See the city come to life at night as you pass by tea houses where maiko and geisha perform music and dances. If you're lucky, you may see elegantly made up maiko or geisha hurrying between their engagements.
  • Award-Winning Cocktail Bar
    Weave through alleys and back streets to reach a hidden gem, a cocktail bar with award-winning bartenders and gold star original drink concoctions. Pair local snacks with a cocktail of your selection. Order a drink based on your mood or ask the bar staff to surprise you with something special!
  • Riverside Family Home Restaurant
    This charming restaurant in a family home over 100 years old will delight you with stories and specialty food. Sample locally-brewed sake while tasting the house specialties: appetizer surprise box, two small dishes featuring mochi and signature kamo (the chef's very own Kyoto-style Peking Duck).
  • Chic Specialty Bar
    Follow your guide once more through the narrow back alleys to see the hidden spots of Japan's ancient capital. Stop by a specialty bar to try world-famous local Japanese whiskies paired with sweets or bar snacks.

    Other beverages are also available for the enjoyment of non-whisky drinkers.
