About the tour

The true magic of Kyoto comes out when dusk falls - see Kyoto transition into a magical nighttime town illuminated with paper lanterns mixed with argon lights. The illuminated cherry blossoms, which give off an ethereal glow, are called yozakura—cherry blossoms at night. Join Kinya for a night stroll along Shirakawa Street in Kyoto's Higashiyama Neighbourhood. Walk through lantern-laden streets under the beautiful yozakura with some history of the relationship between the Japanese people and the cherry trees. Kinya will be talking about how the cherry blossom was highly regarded by Japanese people from old times, share the philosophical connotations behind the scenes of the Japanese cherry blossoms, as well as let you know about the different types of cherry blossoms in Japan.

I loved the tour with Kinya. I had previously been on his daytime cherry blossom tour. Kinya’s twilight tour was even better! Delivered with great enthusiasm and even more informative. I loved the visit to the Shinto shrine and our involvement in the ceremony. The rain actually added to the atmosphere. The two tours were a great contrast. Thank you Kinya for a fabulous tour.

Enjoyed the tour but found that Kinya spoke too fast and I would have liked to see more of the views around .
