These days Kyoto has been in the news for the tourist overload and we want our guests to be able to slow down and enjoy a less crowded but still historic and beautiful area of the city.

We will start off with some snacks under the cherry trees but we will also feature dinner during our tour. Join us at a local noodle restaurant that is serving 100% handmade noodles, try local Sake and a variety of other regional and seasonal dishes.

Sakura season is short, it is impossible to predict exact dates each year but we will be offering this limited edition tour in the time period most famous for Hanami time. With our guide, learn about the history of the area, the meaning and reason behind the sakura season, taste local specialties and enjoy a locally famous, traditional dessert. These sell out early but our guides will be sure to secure your yummy sweets in advance.
