A nighttime food tour can be an ambiguous proposition. You’re out in an unfamiliar city, tasting food from random carts and stalls, making sure those places are delicious and safe at the whim of your guide.
In Kyoto, Magical Trip’s Night Gourmet Tour With so many 5 star reviews and breathtaking praise, I couldn’t help but book a visit when I was in Japan last month. Luckily, the feeding frenzy lived up to the hype.
Magical Trip offers small group tours in Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka, and Hiroshima, with an emphasis on food tours after dark. Our travel group of 6 included a young plastic surgeon from Singapore and his wife, a dermatologist and veterinarian daughter from North Carolina, my wife and I.
Meet in front of the statue of Izumo no Okuni at Gion-Shijo Station. Tomoe, our fun and informative guide, took us through the Gion area, with its densely packed bars and restaurants along the river. We started with the seasoned Kyoto appetizer. Obanzai That’s when I started forgetting oden, sushi, sake, beer, and what I was eating.
The joy of the experience was that I didn’t push too hard or eat too much, which is a common ‘problem’ with other food tours I’ve been on. I gave it to you. I heard about a dermatologist’s recent experience at the Tokyo Marathon and learned more about people undergoing plastic surgery in Malaysia than I ever thought possible.Connect with other travelers when in another country is not always easy. Especially if you don’t speak the language. But Magical Trip gives you the space and time to make it happen.
In addition to the night food tour, Magical Trip offers a Kyoto bar hopping tour, a breakfast food tour at Nishiki Market, a sake and brewery tasting tour, a tea ceremony experience in Kyoto, and a walking visit to the Arashiyama bamboo grove in Kyoto. It offers. Or by bicycle.
Unlike other tours, this tour is small and small in size (usually 6-8 guests) so that you can feel like you are visiting the city with friends and not as an embarrassing mob, so you can interact with each other. can know .
I also like being educated instead of boring lectures. All Magical Trip guides are carefully selected and must complete a comprehensive training course before leading groups around the city. As the website puts it, “Even veterans continue to hone their skills with Magical Trip’s ongoing development program. As a tourist, your vacation days are limited. Why don’t you make the most of it?”
Agree. Eating out a city like Kyoto with a company like Magical Trip adds a dimension to a travel experience that you really can’t get on your own. I’m glad. They do all the work so you can enjoy your destination.
