White Kinkakuji

by Yoshinori - TripleLights travel specialist

It snowed on the day  and I guided foreign visitors in Kyoto. But it’ a lucky day because I could see the Kinkakuji Temple covered with snow for the first time. The Golden Pavilion looked like wearing a white hat with Kitayama Mountain in the background. White KinkakujiGold was perfectly matched with white snow. It was also like a Japanese-style painting with elegance and tranquility. Foreign tourists also admired the white Kinkakuji Temple though it was very cold day, today. And we enjoyed hot Japanese soba, back wheat noodle at a very traditional soba restaurant in Kyoto.

My teenage son and I had only one day to spend touring Kyoto and wanted to make the most of it. Moe is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable of the Nijo Castle, Temples and Shrines that we visited. Moe’s knowledge of the public transportation system was a huge help and it gave us the confidence to navigate the trains and subways of Tokyo on our own. Thank You Moe

We had a wonderful day exploring Kyoto with Masaki as our guide. He speaks english well and is very knowledgeable about the history of Kyoto and the sites that we visited. It was wonderful to see Kyoto at our own pace on a private tour tailored to our interests. Masaki is a fun and energetic guide and I would highly recommend him.

“ Understanding Japanese culture ”

Excellent
3 days ago Traveler: Barbara -   Tour Guide: Richard

Richard went above and beyond the description provided for this tour! We came to Japan thinking we’d be able to understand the culture once we got here and visited the sites. However, we discovered that informative English plaques were limited and tour guides non-existent. I wasn’t satisfied with just taking pictures and moving on. I wanted to understand the history and significance of all these ...
