What To Expect

This night out in Kyoto will give you a true traditional Japanese evening, allowing you to experience all the aspects of life in the city. From JR Kyoto Bus Terminal, you will first head to Shozan Resort right in Kyoto to enjoy one of the highest forms of Japanese entertainment: a traditional Japanese dance from one of Kyoto's esteemed and prized Maiko. Maiko are apprentice geiko, highly trained in the arts of traditional Japanese dance and music, and considered the highest level of entertainer in Japan. Here, you will also enjoy a traditional kaiseki dinner, a multi-course traditional Japanese dinner that requires great skill to craft and produce. You'll be able to enjoy the Shozan Resort's traditional Japanese garden as well, a beautifully tranquil location where you can spend some free time. Then you'll meet up with others and head to Higashiyama Sanjo Park where you'll see a spectacular nighttime view of the mountain, while the city glitters in the evening. As you head back to the station at the end of the tour, you'll look back at these priceless memories of a wonderful evening in Kyoto.

    An experience specially catering to tourists. No other options as it was off season for us. The garden is beautiful at night though.
  • Elizabeth Mary 23 Dec 2018
    The food spread was really interesting. It was helpful that they had a menu card in English. The meiko dance and photo taking was nice. Night view of the city from higher ground was awesome. Overall, experience would have been better if they had started earlier, say about 1630. The sights pointed out during the bus ride was pointless as it was dark.

    Unique experience to see maiko performance and taste kyoto kaiseki dinner. we had enough time for our dinner while enjoying 2 short dance with the maiko. the whole tour was conducted in Japanese hence we just enjoy our dinner and we were the only tourist couple in the grp, most of them were elderly Japanese.
  • Latisha 22 Oct 2018
    maiko show is nice to enjoy, cause its not easy to see that. the dinner, is special. but not a lot. from the bus, its hard to see the sightseeing stuff. the lookout point over the city by night is cool, and the 10 minutes you get up there are more than enough.

    This was the highlight of my first visit to Kyoto Japan.
  • Ze Rae 17 Apr 2018
    The tour is operated by Keihan. Everything was in Japanese. Even though they had English/mandarin/Korean translations through a headset, because we could understand a smattering of Japanese, we realised what was being said live differs from what was translated. The food was so-so, but the performance and gorgeous views more than made up for it.
  • RAFANCEL ANN 8 Mar 2018
    Worth it, especially the maiko dance. She danced with 2 traditional songs. You can also interview her and ask questions about their lives as a maiko.
  • Cindy 4 Mar 2018
    The food tastes way better than i thought i would be. Actually I was hoping that the dinner will be in a japanese style room, but in fact its just like any other hotel dining room.

    It's an amazing and relaxing experience, spending a good time with father in here, traditional and authentic in Kyoto. Especially not many expats in the group of 20.
