Overview

Kyoto is known as exotic sightseeing places and numerous historic, quaint old monuments are seen all over the town. This tour covers part of Rakunan (South district). Visiting Byodo-in Temple which was converted into a temple by Fujiwara-no-Yorimichi in 1052. It symbolizes the Buddhist ********** Taisha Shrine, central shrine for more than 30,000 Inari shrines, is full of tourists.

What to Expect

Uji where Byodo-in Temple was built is a city famous for historic temples and its green tea. A short walk along with Uji river to Kisen-Bashi bridge is so romantic and remind us of The Tale of Genji, a novel written by a noblewoman Murasaki Shikibu in Heian period. The cormorant fishing is held in the evening from July 1 to September 30.

Tourists can’t resist tasty foods at street stands which are lined in both side of approach to Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine. It has been a place of wide worship for the guardian god of abundant crops, businesses, prosperity and family safety since Inari Okami (god of harvest) was housed on Mt.Inari in 711. Approximate 10,000 Torii shrine gates stand which have been offered by worshippers nationwide as a testament of their prayers and gratitude.

“ Nara Visit ”

Mike was a very good tour guide. He had a lot of information to share with us about Nara. He was very pleasant to spend the day with.Nara Park had hundreds of deer walking around and that was very interesting to see them going up to people who would then feed them. There was a lot of walking on our tour but we did not want to miss anything of interest. Mike controlled our pace and made the trip very interesting.

“ Very professional and goes beyond what is expected ”

From the day I booked Masahisa (Mike) he has been emailing me about the itinerary and helping me with restaurant choices, even our transportation to Koyasan. He has given me so much information that I feel I have underpaid him! Although I only booked him for 8 hours, he stayed with us until 7pm and brought us back to out hotel. He was very professional and I will not hesitate to book him again for my future tours.
