What to Expect

Following a pick-up at your hotel, you will go to Kinkakuji Temple which is called the Golden Pavilion. It's most famous for its beautiful garden complex in Japan.
It's an excellent example of the medieval Japan's garden design.
The harmonies relationship between architecture and landscape were greatly emphasized and celebrated during this period.
After visiting Kinkakuji Temple, I will take you to Ryoanji Temple.
In this temple, there is a typical dry landscape garden which is one of Japanese garden style and consists of stones and sand.
Next, you will go to Ginkakuji Temple.
This temple is called the Silver Pavilion. This temple was built by Ashikaga Yoshimasa who was one of the Shogun of the Muromachi Shogunate. This temple's complex represents the Higashiyama culture which formed current Japanese culture.
After the temple, you will go to Kiyomizu Temple.
Original temple was founded in 798.
In particular, since Kiyomizu Stage stands 13 meters high, you can get a full view of Kyoto city from here.
Moreover, Kiyomizu means "pure water" in Japanese.
It is said that water at the spring in this temple will purify their soul and make their wishes come true.
Stroll through souviner shops, you will have traditional Japanese lunch.
After lunch, you will go to Fushimi Inari Shrine. At this shrine, you can see pair of stone foxes.
Because the tail of a fox resembles the ears of a rice plant, a fox was believed to be the messanger of the god.
Moreover, this shrine was worshipped as the patron of business by merchants and manufacturers.
There are roughly 10,000 torii or sacred gates. Each torii is donated by the believers.
Next, I will guide you Arashiyama area.
In Arashiyama area, there is a beautiful Bamboo garden.
The tour ends here. This tour will be your most memorable tour in cool Japan.

“ So much to see in Kyoto ”

We really enjoyed our day out in Kyoto with Goto (Kazuhiro). Upon booking the tour Goto stayed in regular email contact, providing personalized suggestions of additional sights to see. The tour is a combination of walking and public transportation which would have been difficult to plan ourselves. Goto has a lot of energy so make sure you can keep up with him! He met us at our hotel in the morning and we finalized the details of the day. He was very flexible and even helped us with booking train tickets to Tokyo. Goto was also very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we had. One day was not enough as there is so much to see in Kyoto! I would definitely recommend Goto to anyone.

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Thank you for your message. I also enjoyed this tour with your nice family. This tour has became my memorable tour. Thank you!! I hope ttha you will visit Japan again in near future. I would like to guide you in other spots in Japan. Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

I had 9 hours in Kyoto and wanted to make the most of my time in the area. Kazuhiko layed out a custom itinerary that covered the major sites I wanted to see. During our email exchanges, Kazuhiko was always responsive and when I arrived, he had a great and efficient itinerary mapped out for the day. He started off by meeting me at the train car when I arrived inKyoto, coordinated all of our public transportation from site to site, shared his knowledge of the culture and local sites, and planned a nice lunch stop. We moved efficiently from site to site, but I did not feel rushed. We finished off the day with a refreshing desert and then he escorted me back to Kyoto Station. He also assisted with updating my seat reservation for the bullet train and saw me off at the train platform. Thank you Kazuhiko for sharing your knowledge of the local sites and the Japanese culture. It was a great experience.

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Thank you for your message. I'm glad that you enjoyed this tour. I'm also enjoyed this tour with you. I spent nice time/ I hope that this tour become your memorable tour. Moreover, I hope that you will visit Japan again in near future. Thank you!!
