The tour includes five typical tourist destinations in Kyoto city.
We will start with visiting Kiyomizudera Temple literally meaning "Pure water temple". It is the most popular sightsseing spot where you connot miss the panoramic view of the city from its huge stage jutting over a cliff. Many visitors drinking from the streams of pure water falls in the temple expect some divine blessings.
From Kiyomizudera to Gion (classy Gasha district) there is best strolling course in which you can taste the flavor of traditional Kyoto while enjoying stone steps and stone pavement along many cozy and elegant shops,restaurants and old buildings.
In the afternoon we will visit Nijyo Castle,the huge residence of the Tokugawa shoguns in Kyoto, who had been ruling Japan from 17th C to mid 19th C. It was adorned with lavish decorations to show off their absolute power.
Next we will visit Kinkakuji Temple,well known as Golden Pavilion,is definitely must-see in Kyoto. The shining gold leaf covering three-story pavilion never fail to impress visitors with its breathtaking beauty.
The last visit is Ryoanji Temple very famous for its mysterious rock garden.
No one knows for certain when, why and by whom it was created.
so it's up to everyone's interpretation.
My guide fee is 26000yen / 8hours (up to 5 persons)
Kenji did an excellent job of compiling a tour for my family taking into consideration what we particularly wished to see in the time available. We visited major cultural sites such as Fushimi Inari shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple as well as walking through interesting areas such as Gion, Niseki markets and Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. His choice of restaurant for our lunch was appreciated as it was housed in a traditional building, in an area we would never have found by ourselves and served delicious Japanese food. Kenji was very organised. He purchased our rail tickets before meeting us and provided us with a timeline to explain the historical periods of Kyoto. I would highly recommend Kenji if you are considering a tour of Kyoto.
Kenji was very patient with me from the planning stage to the day of the tour. He was flexible and easy to talk to. I highly recommend him for your future tours. Thank you Kenji :-)
Very nice and responsible.
Kenji was very helpful and he came really prepared. He listened to all our requests for our customized tour and gave us quite a memorable day! :) He also assisted us in procuring Japanese souvenirs/collectibles that we really want to bring home. He even went beyond and gave us helpful information about some other places we want to see but cannot fit into our day anymore. We highly recommend Kenji to anyone who needs a guide in this area. :)
Very good schedule. We covered several sites within one day. Traveling via bus and trains wad an interesting experience.
