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!

    The trip is good but may not be suitable for those with small baby and old people as it is too rush.

    Our tour guide hari was awesome she speaks good English and very kind accommodating shes a good person
  • Li Ping Caslin 21 May 2018
    Very fast pace for family with elderly or kids. The tour guide is polite but should try to introduce or provide more information for different shrines. Food was normal for udon set.
  • Angelita 21 May 2018
    The parking lot was too far from each of the sites limiting the time to explore the temples, the Limon tour guide is not good. She speaks English but her voice is too soft and her words are garbled. I also do not recommend availing the Washoku lunch.
  • kristine marie 20 May 2018
    we enjoy the tour. they provided enough time for each shrine. they let us roam around freely in each place.
  • GILBERT 18 May 2018
    we enjoyed our family trip and the food served was great!
  • FARRAH 17 May 2018
    Very hassle free tour. You just need to be on time. Going to OCAT where the meeting place is also easy as it is accessible at train station you just need to walk for about 15 minutes or so.
  • Yin suan 16 May 2018
    Not for elderly and kids as it was too rushed. 1 hour plus given for each of the 4 places is good as there’s no time wastage but as a result, elderly can’t walk all the way up or into the temple and it is largely a touch and go approach for the different destinations. We only walked the Arashiyama bamboo forest fully, couldn’t go up the Fushimi thousand gates and only reached the entrance of the 1000-gates. For kiyozumi dera, due to lunch and traditional streets along the way, there’s also little time to walk all the way up. You either sacrifice one or the other. There’s no guide per say as its more of transport provided. Minimal info on where to go was given, with a map provided.
