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.

“ wonderful private tour of Kyoto. ”

My family had a wonderful experience. We only had a day in Kyoto and having Toshiyo to show us around saved us so much time. You will be in good hands. She can maneuvere through the subway and the busy streets. We were able to see a lot in a short time from temples, Shrines, bamboo forest, downtown, monkey park, lunch. She asked us what we wanted to do and customized the tour to our desires and needs. Toshiyo is relaxed and knowledgeable about the city. She constantly provided details and interesting facts about where we were and the history of the places. If you want geat value, you are time conscious and would like personal attention you can't go wrong. We recommend Toshiyo as a guide, much better than being in a large tour waiting around for other people.

“ Kyoto 6 hour ”

Though it started with some difficulties on finding the meeting point (not using a common place), all went smoothly. But actually within 6 hours, it’s rather limited to see most of Kyoto


Dear Fachry Thank you for your review. I think since iKyoto is a big city and far to move from north, west and east. I hope you will come back to see more in Kyoto. Autumn is the best. Thank you for having me as your guide. Toshiyo

“ Kyoto tour ”

We had fun and learned a lot. We shopped ( a little) and Toshiyo found us an amazing kimono shop. More importantly, we toured a castle and temple. We learned a lot about life in Kyoto. She made my 13 yr old very happy finding (as my daughter put it) “the best Ramen place ever!”


Dear Margaret Thank you very much for warm hearted review. I am very glad you enjoyed Kyoto. I hope your husband liked your kimonos. Please come back again to see beautiful autumn in Kyoto. Thank you for having me as your guide. Toshiyo

“ A wonderful guide ”

Toshiyo took us all over kyoto. She showed a perfect understanding of where everything was, and was flexible too. I was only in Kyoto for 1 day and was pleased with everything I got to see. 5 stars!!
