What to Expect

In this tour we cover the must-sees of Kyoto. We will visit Kinkaku-ji shrine (Golden Pavilion), the fabulous looking temple covered with gold. This tour also includes the Fushimi-Inari shrine, which is famous for its long tunnels made of thousands of vermilion colored Torii gates (Senbon-Torii). In the last part of the trip, we will visit Kiyomizu-dera temple, where you would be able to have a very nice view of Kyoto, and enjoy souvenir shopping along the streets that leads to the temple.

* This tour requires a lot of walking, if you are not confident about walking long distances, our guides can customize the itinerary to make it easier for you.

 

Highlights

Kinkakuji was established in 1397 by Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. The dazzling appearance of the reliquary hall on the temple grounds, which is decorated with gold leaf, is what Kinkakuji is known for.

Serving as a place of worship for commoners over 1,300 years, Fushimi Inari Shrine is the headquarters of inari shrines. The tunnel consisting of 10,000 torii gates is something to see. Enjoy a stroll through the gently rolling land of the spacious grounds of the shrine.

Kiyomizu-dera is a Kannon temple where the goddess Kannon is worshipped. Among Kyoto’s temples, Kiyomizu-dera has a particularly long history, and is a registered World Heritage site. It is one of Kyoto’s most popular tourist attractions.

“ We got our money's worth and then some. ”

From the very start, Toshiyo was very flexible with the meeting time due to certain circumstances we had with the shinkansen. From the get go, she made adjustments to our itinerary for the day, due to the massive volume of other tourists at Kyoto at the time. This goes to show that she really did put a lot of thought into the tour that she gave us. We managed to visit all of the places I really wanted to go to even though our tour was adjusted in some way. At every place we visited she gave interesting trivia and other facts for that certain place. She was pleasent to be around with, and is a prime example of how hospitable the japanese can be.

“ outstanding tea-experience ”

chisato organised an excellent tea experience for us. She has customised the tour precisely to our wishes. We visited a tea farmer family. We got the opportunity to pick tea flowers on their farm. Afterwards the tea farmer served various dishes containing tea leaves. We did taste different kinds of tea. At last we visited local tea traders. We owe her an unforgettable day and this unique tea experience in Wazuka.

“ Best of Kyoto ”

We had a wonderful time in Kyoto thanks to Hiro-san. We were able to see all the highlights and more in 2 days. He made the tour very entertaining with his stories, my 2 daughters were delighted. He also took extra effort to take a lot of pictures for us. It was a little bit rush but very understandable since we want to cover a lot of sights. He also did some Q&A wherein we get chocolates at the end of the day for getting the right answers, it was a very seet gesture. Would highly recommend him to friends and would definitely book him again for our future trips 😊👍👏
