Hi my name is Danny. Originally born in Australia, I have had a 26 year love affair with Japan, it's people & it's culture. Having previously lived in Tokyo, I moved to Kyoto 4 years ago. Like many visitors to Kyoto I immediately fell in love with the cities history, temples & gardens. As a result I opened my own guesthouse and cafe, (Jam Jar Lounge & Inn) , which allows me the opportunity to show visitors from all over the world the delights of my adopted city.

About the tour

Our tour takes you on a journey through not one but two of the old capitals Geisha districts, past Shinto shrines, Buddhist Temples & other local night time haunts usually overlooked by first time visitors to Kyoto.

WHAT WILL WE DO ? ........ Focusing mainly on the historical areas of inner Gion & Higashiyama, we will walk past ancient Shinto Shrines, illuminated Buddhist Temples, secret bars in hidden alleyways, and of course do our very best to spot the elusive Geisha on her way to an appointment. Photo opportunities abound when we walk through the quiet residential area of Ishibei-koji alley and imagine Kyoto 200 years ago , before making our way to the famous Yasaka-no-Tour pergoda for that perfect shot. After a night view of Kyoto city we will explore Gion's main shrine the Yasaka Jinja with it's long history and amazing sub-temples. At the conclusion of our tour, your guide will be only too happy to assist with your forward journey, or recommend delicious eating spots for you to enjoy! So come join us for a relaxed and informative walk through the old capital of Japan and learn fun facts that you won’t find in any of your guide books.

Suitable for walkers of any age. Although the course is mostly flat, there are some steps to navigate. We will do approximately 8,000 - 10,000 steps during the course of the tour. Fitness Level Required 6/10.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
