Geisha District Walk , Japan

This evening you will be enjoying a tour of the Geisha district with an English-speaking guide, Duncan Flett. Duncan has been living in Kyoto for over 10 years working as a freelance translator.

Since 2005 Duncan and his wife Izumi have been working with Audley Travel to escort visitors around the Gion district and other parts of Kyoto to help shed some light on the exclusive and mysterious world of the Geisha and other aspects of Japanese culture.

Both half Japanese but having grown up in England and Spain respectively, Duncan and Izumi are perhaps best placed to bridge the gap between Japan and the west, providing you with an informative and lasting memory of your time in Kyoto.
