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.

“ Tour of Historic Kyoto ”

Toshiyo is wonderful!! A very intelligent and considerate person who truly made our trip to Kyoto so special and insightful! She met us at our hotel in the morning and we did an all day tour with her that involved 4 different temples/shrines. She provided fantastic knowledge about each site throughout the tour and helped navigate the city so we could really see as much as possible in the amount of time we had without losing out on quality. We would highly recommend her and the TripleLights company!

“ Excellent guide ”

We love Toshiyo. She is a natural with warm and caring personality. She made us feel at home and worked according to our schedule without rushing us while keeping us in check too. She knows Kyoto so well and shared a lot to us. I will gladly have her back when I return to Kyoto. There is still so much too see but we just had so little time. Thank you Toshiyo for giving us a great time seeing Kyoto in such a short time. You are the best!

“ A fun and learning Kyoto experience ”

My three kids, mother, and I had a great time going around Kyoto last Dec. 25, 2017, thanks to Toshiyo. She expertly guided us and shared interesting information about the places we asked her to bring us to, such as the Golden Temple, Bamboo Forest, the Nijo Castle, and the Kiyomizudera Temple. Thanks so much, Toshiyo, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Domo arigato gozaimashita.
