Kyoto 1 Day Tour (8 hours)

If you’re visiting Japan, trip to the ancient city of Kyoto is a must. Kyoto originally flourished as center of politics and culture in Japan, but now it is a tourist destination with a distinctly Japanese atmosphere, with shrines, temples, cityscapes that oozes history. Since the city is always teeming with tourists both from Japan and overseas, hiring one of our charter vehicles or charter bus will be much easier and cheaper than using public transport. The first place we visit is the world-famous Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. The stunning row of vermillion torii gates that goes on and on for about 70 meters is a must see. You would feel as if you have entered a fantasy world. Kinkakuji is the most popular building in Kyoto. Let’s take a walk around the garden that surrounds the golden Zen temple.

For lunch, try some Japanese cuisine with pickles and tofu that Kyoto is famous for. In the afternoon, we will visit the national treasure Sanjusangen-do, a Buddhist temple built about 1,000 years ago. The temple contains 1001 Senju Kannon statues, and it is a sight to behold. The final stop in this trip is Kiyomizu-dera Temple, a famous sightseeing spot also registered as a World Heritage Site. It is packed with highlights such as Nio-mon gate at the entrance, West gate, and the three-story pagoda. An absolute must see is the “stage of Shimizu”, a verandah structure that hangs out from the main hall. The structure has been built with a technique that does not use nails at all, and you can get a great view of the Kyoto city from the stage. The bustling entrance area of the temple lined with souvenir shops and cafes are just a joy to see. If you are lucky, you may be able to meet some Maiko (apprentice Geisha) ladies during the day!
