What To Expect

Escape the busy city and take a day to explore the historic sites and ancient temples outside Osaka on this full day guided tour. After your city departure, you’ll be welcomed by the pink cherry blossoms of Arashiyama, a traditional district famed for its stunning mountain scenery and well preserved royal court. Here, begin by taking a wander through the bamboo grove. With towering stalks of green bamboo that seem to reach into the sky, you’ll feel immersed in an otherworldly atmosphere throughout this peaceful stroll. Depending on your chosen package, enjoy a buffet or set lunch before hopping on the Randen for a picturesque tram ride to Shijo-Omiya. From there you’ll be transported to the UNESCO site of Todai-ji and get up close to its star attraction, the Daibutsu Buddha, which as one of the largest bronze figures in the world, is a hugely impressive sight to behold. All the while your guide will provide you with in depth knowledge as you explore the beautiful grounds of this ancient imperial city. End the day by relaxing in Nara Park, the home of 1000 freely roaming tame deer and with plenty of deer food available, you can have a go at feeding them yourself!

  • YIHSUAN 3 Sep 2018
    good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~Had a very nice trip!!!
  • JUDITH 30 Aug 2018
    The arashimaya bamboo forest was a refreshing scene although it was a bit rush (walking on a hot summer sun) and need to get back to the restaurant for the prepaid lunch (though the set lunch was satisfying and tasty😋 The Nara Deer Park was amazing and they were so stunningly tamed and sweet. I was also impressed with the Gigantic wooden temple. In sum this day trip gets you to must go places scot-free!

    The trip is very fun, nice guides
  • JOEY 16 Aug 2018
    The experience was good and had enjoyed it with my family!
  • Sau Chu 15 Aug 2018
    Well organised trip. Highly recommended. The tour guide is nice and informative. Everything is on time. Different routes are provided to cater your need. It is suitable for children and elderly. The deers in Nara are very cute, yet a little bit aggressive. Hilarious moments happened during feeding.
  • Ching Wai 14 Aug 2018
    My tour guide is very polite and pleasant. We set off on time. However, there was traffic jam, it was quite rush for the sightseeing at 嵐山 The light buffet was fine. don't expect too much. Actually we quite enjoyed the lunch buffet.
  • Daryl 12 Aug 2018
    Meet up location is easy to find. However, it is very messy and confusing at the start as there are several groups in a tour bus each with different packages. And itinerary for the day was not explained clearly by tour guide. But tour guide is nice. Take the option without lunch as there are many other lunch options in Arashiyama and is cheaper than what Klook is offering for their tour and lunch packages. Also, u have more time to explore Arashiyama without being constricted by the time limits set to attend lunch.
  • RENE 11 Aug 2018
    Interesting. Nice service. Totally not what I expected though.
  • muhammad usman sajid 9 Aug 2018
