The spectacular tunnel of thousands of vermilion torii gates is so famous and picturesque. These torii gates were offered by worshippers in appreciation of the good fortune they received from the deity enshrined here. Why don’t you, too, offer a prayer and change your luck?

Our guide Mitsue was welcoming and provided a relaxed walking tour. After meeting at Kyoto station we proceded to travel by train to a shrine that we would not have otherwise discovered. Mitsue clearly pointed out places of interest before heading to the Gion. Mitsue's comprehensive knowledge of the area gave us piece of mind in knowing we were in good hands and would not get lost. With so many small streets and laneways in the Gion it is easy to lose your way. Being a late tour we were able to enjoy the area at dusk before returning to Kyoto station by bus some four hours later. By the end of the tour we felt that we had made a new friend in Mitsue as she was interested to hear about our travels and also shared some of her life with us. We found Mitsue to be an endearing guide who has excellent English skills and vast knowledge of the local culture and places of interest in and around Kyoto. I recommend this tour for gaining a good over view of the area and using local buses and trains.
