A visit to the places I enjoy the most in Kyoto in 2 days! I really enjoy walking around these famous spots. We can start at Fushimi Inari, then a visit my favourite castle in Japan: Nijojo after we will head towards the golden. Finally, we will have a relaxing stroll around Arashiyama, visiting the gorgeous bamboo forest.

What to Expect

You will see the main spots in kyoto during these 2 days. Although these are mainstream visits, they are totally worthy and everyone enjoys them!

We are going to be taking public transportation as much as possible, but the tour requires a relatively good physical condition since there is quite a lot of walking along the monuments. Specially Fushimi Inari, which is located on a mountain, can be challenging (we do not need to see it all tho). We will not rush tho, so don't worry!

“ Fantastic day with Agustin ”

Agustin was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and was very patient with us all as we were a group of people speaking several languages. He showed is a lot in Kyoto and came with us to a Maiko Tea Ceremony which was enchanting. We were very happy and would highly recommend him.


Thank you for your review Jane! It was a really fun day for me too. I hope the rest of your trip went well and you made amazing memories!

“ Fantastic guide, brought insight for the customers ”

I arranged for Agustin to guide my customers, Mary Schreider and her family, around Kyoto and Osaka from 31st March to April 2nd. From the feedback that we received from the customers, Agustin was a fantastic guide who made the tour very interesting for the customers, was attentive to their needs and recommended them places to eat which the customers enjoyed very much. I highly recommend Agustin for anyone looking to have an insight into the Kansai region (Kyoto/Nara/Osaka/Kobe) in Spanish/English, and who is looking to have the best possible time in Japan!
