Go to Kyoto from Osaka on this day trip filled with fantastic sightseeing, majestic views, love fortunes, food, and fruit-picking! Your trip kicks off when you meet your guide at the Mainichi Shimbun Building, then departing to Kyoto's Amanohashidate, a pine covered sandbar that spans the mouth of Miyazu Bay in the scenic, coastal region of northern Kyoto Prefecture. When you take the monorail to Amanohashidate View Land, there is the best place to do "Matanozoki," a Japanese term for looking upside down through your legs, which will make the sandbar seem as if it's a bridge going to heaven! You'll also get to drop by the Amanohashidate Shrine, which is a good place to pray for some luck in love or gain some fortunes in romance. Have a delicious seafood sushi rice bowl for lunch, filled with yummy sea urchin, salmon, salmon eggs, tuna, and sweet shrimp. You'll then get to experience a brief but fun an all-you-can-eat cherry picking experience at Omiya Cherry Garden. Before calling it a day, maybe you'd want to shop for some quality silks at your final stop - Tango Chirimen Rekishikan.
