What To Expect

The Kyoto Prefecture is one of the best areas in Japan if you want to see the country’s beautiful natural wonders and magnificent temples. Book this day tour and go on adventure that’ll take you to wonderful spots where you can admire the majestic natural treasures in the area. You’ll begin by meeting up with your tour group and guide at the Karasumaguchi Terminal at JR Kyoto Station. You’ll get on a bus and then you’ll be taken to the outskirts of Kyoto to ride the Sagano Romantic Train, which will take you on a 25-minutes ride around the beautiful countryside where you’ll get filmic views of the colorful trees covering the lush landscape. After that, you’ll go on a Hozugawa River cruise and admire the gorgeous forests by the river while you revel in the soothing sounds of its rippling waters. After a relaxing boat ride, you’ll be taken to the Arashiyama District, which is one of the most popular sightseeing areas in the prefecture. There, you’ll get the chance to go for a stroll through the incredible Bamboo Grove and see the many shrines in the area like the Tenryu-ji and Nison-in Temples. What makes this tour even sweeter is that you’ll be given 4 discount coupons that you can use during your free time in this tour: 1 for an entrance to the Kyoto Arashiyama Orgel Museum, 1 for the Ebisuya rickshaw rides and the Arashiyama Tsusen boat rides, 1 for a foot spa and massage at the Arashiyu Spa, and 1 for product discounts from selected stores in the area.
