What To Expect

Explore Japan’s ancient capital and turn back time as you explore Kyoto’s must-see historical sites. After departing from Osaka, the tour will head to Fushimi Inari-taisha, a shrine with ancient origins dedicated to the god of rice and sake. It is most renowned for the thousands of orange torri gates that mark the seemingly unending pathways towards the hillside shrines. This iconic walkway immediatley evokes the symbolism of traditional Japan and makes for some striking photographs. Next on the tour is Kiyomizu-dera where you’ll have a washoku or Udon set meal lunch depending on your tour package. This traditional wooden temple is famous for its unique construction, serene tranquility and also offers spectacular views over the vibrant cherry blossom gardens. The guided tour will finish at the Kinkaku-ji Zen Temple, also known as ‘The Golden Pavilion’ – and for good reason! The top two floors are entirely covered in gold leaf and the image of this shimmering temple mirrored in the calm waters of the reflective pond will certainly take your breath away so make sure to have your camera at the ready!

    This is a must to visit Kyoto Temples & Shrine Day Tour. This tour covered most of the place of interests that you need to visit. It saves time and money, no hassle on transport and easy to locate the places when you reach there with the tour guide. LIMON’s tour guide is very nice and cheerful.
  • Jillian Gabrielle 20 Feb 2019
    The tour guide was accommodating. Lunch set given was simple but delicious. Must try to visit if you want to know more about Japan's history and culture.

  • Hazel 19 Mar 2019
    the tour is convenient since you dont have to worry about how to transfer from one place to another however, the tour is on a rush and not advisable for elderly.
  • Yew Wai 18 Feb 2019

  • Zhong Ting 15 Mar 2019
    the time is limited and there are way too many people (too crowded) at each places. felt pretty rush and didn't enjoy. however, the guide was friendly but her voice can't be heard clearly in the bus (we sat right at the back of the bus)

    Meeting place area was very convenient as I stayed in Namba area. It was just a 10mins walking distance! I super enjoyed this trip as our tour guide was very polite and accommodating. Before each destination she would tell something about the history of the place. She will also recommend the best photo area in every tourist spot. So make sure you stay close to your tour guide!

    It was a good tour. The guide was very friendly and made sure everyone was well taken cared of. There was also enough time to explore the place, grab a quick bite or two, as well as buy some souvenirs around the area. Pick up point was also easy enough to find, it was a well-organized tour.

    Our tour guide was very helpful, informative, and always available to answer questions. She also provided a lot of historical information of the various shrines we went to. She also personalized her service by asking all of us individually what we needed, where we were going after the tour so she can help us find it, etc. If you like temples, this is good but time is a constraint for some of them.
