This tour features both hiking and visiting a stunning, rarely visited world heritage site. Hiking in Mt. Hiei, one of the three holy mountains in Japan, will reveal to you the iconic Japanese scenic beauty of mountains and a lake. We take the same route of ancient pilgrimage and hike gently up to Enryaku-ji temple, a world heritage site. Overlooking Lake Biwa, the biggest lake in Japan, we will enjoy glorious sightseeing and come down, according to your preference, on the same or a different route or by Japan’s longest cable car. Time-permitting, we will explore the bottom of the mountain with many quaint temples and shrines. The area is often used for locations for filming. This refreshing hiking tour gives you a chance to imbibe Japan’s authentic verdant beauty and rich history.
Ryoji is professional, friendly and speaks good English. I learned a lot about Kyoto during the 2 hours tour. Highly recommend!
I ended up traveling solo so booked the evening Gion tour with Ryoji who was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was especially nice to see the quieter areas away from all the crowds. The secret garden is just lovely.
Despite the fact that we had different age gaps in our group (from a 6yr old to 84yr old), Ryoji was very patient and extremely accommodating to all of us. He took us to the most amazing sites in Kyoto, all the while telling annecdotes and histories of each place and taught us some of the Japanese culture. He made sure each of us had an awesome experience to remember, took us to the best places to eat, helped us find all the little keepsakes we wanted and made sure we got on the right train back home! Best tour ever!
We all really enjoyed our tour with Ryoji. Excellent English and knowledge plus a few lovely surprises along the way. Thank you
He did a great job. The tour went on time and just as promised. Spoke very good English. Gave us a very good overview of the Gion area and Kyoto nightlife. Gave us the ability to return to the area and know what we were doing.
