Katsura Imperial Villa is too beautiful to express! In the early Edo period, Prince Toshihito, who excelled in both literature and the martial art from childhood, built the Villa. That is both tasteful and simple. We need to apply for the Imperial Household Agency to get in. I will apply for you by postcard. It takes an hour to see the villa by the special guide of the villa. The fee is free.

What to Expect

Katsura Imperial Villa needs admission in advance. The number of visitors is limited. So visit to Katsura Imperial Villa is worth visiting. I am sure you will be satisfied with this artistic sensibility.

“ Amazing day in Kyoto! ”

Toshi was a great guide for my first day in Kyoto. We went all over the city, which allowed me not only to take in some amazing sights but also to get to know the bus and subway systems so I could use them by myself the rest of the trip. Toshi also gave me tips on additional places to go and the best timing to avoid the crowds. For example, I was planning to go to Kiyomizu-dera on the 2nd day but as she and I ended at Kodak-ji which was pretty close, she suggested that I go that same day as there would be fewer people later in the day. And she was right! I appreciated that Toshi provided lots of facts and insight about the places we visited, without making it feel like a lecture. We had a good time chatting and getting to know each other a bit throughout the day. Toshi also picked a... read more

Toshiyo is experienced, knows Kyoto very well. Our 4 hours were well spent covering Nijo-jo Castle, Kinkakiju Temple and Arashiyama. The sites were well explained. She gave us pointers to sites we could do on our own.Toshiyo has good English and is courteous. I would highly recommend her.

“ Two days custom tour in Kyoto ”

We had a great two days touring with Toshiyo in Kyoto - she is professional, prompt and very friendly. She’s interested in you getting the most out of your visit here. Toshiyo was very helpful in providing us suggestions of sights to visit, getting us around Kyoto to see many more places than we would have ever been able to on our own and is very knowledgeable of the history of the sites we were visiting as well as the greater history of Japan. My suggestion for Kyoto and a successful visit here - spend some time before your visit researching a little on which sites you wish to see - there are so many options and it helps to have worked out what you want to see - Toshiyo wil” then work out a travel itinerary and make recommendations for additional sights al8ng the way.


Dear John and Ulysses Thank you very much for warm hearted review. I am very glad I could help your stay in Kyoto very memorable and maybe special. I was very pleased to meet you. Hope you will come you will come back again. Toshiyo
