What to Expect

The castle is located in the center of Kyoto city and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. It was originally built in 1603 as the official Kyoto residence of the first Tokugawa Shogun,Ieyasu. Nijo Caslte is one of the finest examples of early Edo period and Momoyama culture in Japan, as it makes splendid use of early Edo period building designs, lavish paintings, and carvings that Iemitsu generously commissioned. In 1867, when Yoshinobu, the fifteenth Tokugawa Shogun returned soverignty to the Emperor, the caslte became the property of the Imperial family. Inside Ninomaru Palace Yoshinobu summoned the coultry's feudal lords and declared that soverignty would be restored to the Emperor. There are two Japanese gardens.You can enjoy the bearutiful scenary.

“ Kyoto-Shi spent with a local guide ”

This petite sophisticated Japanese teacher dipped us into the complexities of the Japanese culture - enhancing our appreciation of the country and its people. She was client responsive by adjusting the program at our request and made the day fit into an already busy schedule. Her grace, curiosity and intelligence made the time spent with her very worth while

Toshiyo:

Thank you very much for you having me as your guide. Your family are all amazing. I learned a lot about different cultures. I am very glad you like Japan. Please come back again when you have time. Thank you. Toshiyo

“ Amazing guide, helped us see the city! ”

We spent our first few hours in Kyoto with Toshiyo. We were only in the city for 2 days, and Toshiyo made our full 4 hours so educational and fun. She took us to all of the sights we wanted to see, educated us on the temples and culture and history of Kyoto, and even helped us navigate the bus and subway system as we had just arrived in Japan. Toshiyo made our trip to Kyoto so memorable and helped us maximize our time! We had a great experience, thank you Toshiyo!

Toshiyo:

Dear Talia Thank you very much for you having me as your guide. I am very glad you enjoyed Kyoto. Please come back again. Thank you very much. Toshiyo
