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.

“ A great day around Higashiyama! ”

Our day tour around Kyoto with Toshi was great! Toshi has a plan that covered exactly what we wanted to see in Eastern Kyoto while keeping a casual pace. She was quite knowledgeable about all the sites and was patient and gracious as we stopped at stores or bought food around the streets of Gion. We would definitely recommend Toshi as a guide for your time in Kyoto

Toshiyo:

Dear Juan Thank you very much for warm hearted review. I appreciate you having me as a guide. I am happy to hear you and your beautiful family enjoyed Kyoto. I hope you will come back again to see the autumn leaves. Best regards. Toshiyo’s

“ 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.

Toshiyo:

Dear Nubia Thank you very much for having me as a guide. I appreciate your warm hearted review. I was much impressed with your international background. Thank you very much for visiting Kyoto all the way. Best regards. Toshiyo
