What to Expect

Please watch a video. From the first 30 seconds to 60 seconds you see the view from the top of Kytoto Station, and for 2 minutes from 3 minutes 40 seconds you can enjoy beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves at Shosei-en Garden, and for the last one minute you can see the view from the observatory of Kyoto Tower.

Kyoto was the ancient capital of Japan from 794 over one thousand years.
I would like to introduce you the area around Kyoto Station.
I can show you Fushimi inari Shrine, Toji Temple, two Honganji Temples, and Shosei-en Garden.

Fushimi Inari Shrine founded in the early 8th century is very popular shrine. On the average, as many as 2.7 million people pay their first visit to this shrine during the first three days of January every year. You can pass through Senbontorii or one thousand shrine gates.

Just a little before arriving Kyoto Station from Osaka using JR (Japan railways), you can see a tall five-stoty pagoda on the right side. It is about 55 meters high at Toji Temple, the tallest five-story pagoda in Japan. In 823 the priest Kukai came to Toji and made it a temple of the Shingon esoteric Buddhist teachings.

The two Honganji Temples, Nishi(West) and Higashi(East), are temples that should not be missed.
Nishi Honganji's Chinese-style Kara-mon gate is a relic of Fushimi Castle. You can stare at decorative engravings of Kara-mon.
Higashi Honganji's grounds has the Miei-do, which is said to be one of the largest wooden structures in the world.

In fact Honganji Temple has been divided into two temples for a certain reason. It is related to Osaka Castle. Do you know why ?

The elegant Shosei-en Garden is located at a short distance of the Higashi Honganji Temple. You can enjoy cherry bosoom viewing in spring and changing colors of autumn leaves in fall.

Lastly you can enjoy 360-degree panoramic view of Kyoto city from the observatory of Kyoto Tower.

There are a lot of scenic places around Kyoto Station. Why don't you join a walking tour around Kyoto Station with me ?

“ Day trip in Kyoto ”

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

“ Good tours ”

We had two Hideo tours in Kyoto and one in Osaka. Hideo was well prepared for the tours with maps, tickets and printed tour plants. He coomunicated with me prior to the tours and put together these tours based on my requests. He navigated through paublic transportation system very well. His english is not perfect and sometimes it was difficult to understand him, but we gor buy OK. We wanted local cultural experience and got it.
