    The tour itself was great but lunch was bad. I requested a lunch with no pork when booking the trip but there was pork almost in everything. Tour guide was attentive and coach bus was neat and clean. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

What To Expect

Springtime in Japan heralds the coming of the sakura season where the country's entire landscape experiences a sudden burst of pink. However, as this bloom often doesn’t last more than a week, this tour allows you to view the very best of Kyoto’s sakura season all in one day. Following your departure from the Kyoto pick up points, you’ll arrive in the tranquil district of Arashiyama where you’ll explore the magical bamboo forest set against stunning mountain scenery before enjoying a traditional lunch. Afterwards, hop onboard the Sagano Romantic Train, an old fashioned train that winds through a spectacular forested ravine and the famous cherry blossom tunnel. The slow pace of the train also gives you plenty of time to savour the breathtaking scenery and snap a few photos. You’ll then explore the UNESCO site of Nijo Castle where you can walk through centuries of Samurai and Shogun history and enjoy the traditional Japanese gardens. After viewing the impressive pink canopy of blooms in Heian Shrine, a partial replica of Kyoto’s original Imperial Court, you’ll end your tour in the Japan Mint. Although this is Japan's agency responsible for the supply of coins it is also famous for its vibrant garden of over 300 cherry trees containing over 100 different varieties. As this site is only open for one week a year to the general public, and arguably the best place for sakura viewing in the Kansai area - it's a sight you won't want to miss!

    Is the English leader, a day car, save a lot of traffic time, so cherry-viewing becomes very relaxed and happy.

    I am very satisfied with the attitude of the team leader, but the time to watch on the trip is not enough, because after the trip to the attractions need to go too much time.
