What To Expect

Need a break from the hustle and bustle of the urban sprawl? Go on a wonderful tour and learn all about Japanese traditions and culture in the beautiful Kyoto Prefecture. You'll begin the tour by meeting up with a fun-loving and knowledgeable English-speaking tour guide, who will provide you with JR Passes to ride the trains, which is your primary mode of transportation for this cultural morning tour; throughout the tour, the guide will regale you with stories and commentary regarding the places that you'll visit. Your first stop is the Fushimi Inari-taisha, a shrine that sits at the very top of Mt. Inari. To get there, you'll take a long, humbling, and relaxing walk beneath thousands of red Torii gate arches lined up all the way to the top, and once you reach summit, you'll get the opportunity to say a prayer at the beautiful shrine. After visiting the shrine, you'll board the train to Uji City, where you'll visit another shrine known as the Byōdō-in Temple, a Buddhist temple that was built back in the country's Heian period. The temple sits in the middle of a majestic garden where you can romp around and revel in the tranquil atmosphere; here, the zen life awaits you. Besides this shrine, Uji City is famous for its matcha green tea, and you'll get the chance to taste some in Taiho-an, a quaint tea house that's dedicated to promoting everything concerning Uji's matcha green tea. Here, you'll see how the denizens of Uji conduct their tea ceremonies and learn how they make their famous green tea. Once you taste authentic Uji matcha green tea, you'll be left only wanting their brand of matcha. To cap off this awesome tour, your tour guide will take you to Kisen-Chaya where you can have lunch (if you purchased the package that includes lunch) or be sent off back to Kyoto with some Japanese sweets (if you opted for the package without lunch). This tour is definitely a must if you want to get to know the more traditional side of Japan.
