The best Kyoto night tours & experiences with locals
There’s nowhere in the world quite as mystical as Kyoto after dark. As the sun sets over the Kamo River, turning its water a thousand shades of orange, Kyoto’s traditional entertainment district, Gion, wakes up. Lanterns light up cobbled streets and wooden buildings are cast in a golden glow, signaling the start of the night. Japan doesn’t get much more vibrant or atmospheric than night tours in Kyoto, when previously quiet streets packed with restaurants, vibey local haunts, and tucked-away shrines become crowded. With so much to see, you don’t want to get caught in a tourist trap – let night tours in Kyoto with City Unscripted show you where locals spend their free time.
