Escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo for one day and take a tour to the famous historical city of Kyoto, Japan's ancient capital which holds around a thousand and more years of rich history and culture. This day tour is perfect for those staying in Tokyo who don't have enough time to go around but still long to have a peak into Kyoto. Here, you'll be riding the Shinkansen, Japan's famous bullet train. It'll be taking you to Kyoto within the brieft timespan of 2 hours. Once you're there, you'll be treated to a western-style lunch at the New Miyako Hotel. After you're full, you'll be ready to embark on your tour. The first stop is the Heian Shrine, one of the most important cultural properties of Japan. This beautiful shrine is visually-breathtaking, much especially so during festival seasons. Next on the itinerary is the Sanjusangen-do Temple, where you can view its famous Kannon figures (over a thousand of them in the image of the goddess of mercy) carved in the 12th and the 13th centuries. Finally, head to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, a Historic Monument of Ancient Kyoto and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is one of Kyoto's must-visit attractions as it is one of the most celebrated in Japan. Stroll through sprawling temple grounds, see pagodas, ponds, and plenty more. Return to Tokyo once the day ends via the Shinkansen.
