The Kyoto Night Food Tour through Gion and Kamogawa is a celebration of Japanese traditional Kaiseki, a multi-course, multi-flavored Japanese dinner that flawlessly mixes the cuisine of the world to produce some of the most delicious dishes on the planet.
What to Expect
Starting in Kamogawa, you will stroll along the local streets and head toward Kamogawa River to gaze upon the many Japanese locals enjoying the cool of the evening, while sitting on the many terraces along the water known as Kamogawa yuka noryo in Japanese.
After crossing the Kamogawa River, you'll enter into Gion, a district of Kyoto, home to many Geisha houses and traditional tea houses. In the evenings you'll be able to see Geisha walking the streets. As Japan's former capital and the seat of the imperial court for over a thousand years, Kyoto offers a rich culinary tradition. Kyoto reigned as the capital of Japan for nearly 1,200 years and consequently, has developed into a wonderful culture of food ranging from simple sweets for the common people, to stunning Kaiseki courses (multi-course Japanese dinner) for nobles and formal tea ceremony meals. There are over 100 Michelin-starred restaurants in Kyoto, offering food ranging from traditional Japanese, to French and fusion.
At the end of the short journey, you will sit down to a Kaiseki dinner, prepared especially and specifically for Arigato Japan. This should be a moment in your life you will never forget, so the details will be reserved for those who join the tour. To give you an idea, one of the 10 courses will be an ornate platter mounted with living fish, and you can enjoy the freshest sashimi straight from the bone. The other 9 courses are a mystery guaranteed to surprise and delight your culinary senses.
