    The guided tour arrangement well. Visitors have enough time to walk around the places and enjoy the food nearby. The green tea ice-cream provided was nice.

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!

    The guided tour arrangement well. Visitors have enough time to walk around the places and enjoy the food nearby. The green tea ice-cream provided was nice.
  • Mark Ian 13 Feb 2018
    Everything is on-time. Bus is comfortable. Manage to roam around and enjoy every tourist spot at the time given. Just hoping you could provide an English talking guide next time.
  • Abigail 6 Feb 2018
    The trip was organized and hassle-free. We enjoyed our trip and our guide was very friendly. Though it would be nice if the buffet lunch will be longer to enjoy the food. Over-all, trip was worth it!
  • Yew Hong 2 Feb 2018
    The trip was well organized by the local tour agency which is Limon. Well explained during the tour bilangual in Chinese and English. Good gastronomic Japanese buffet lunch. The only drawback is not enough time to have the complete buffet lunch as they have designated time frame for the lunch.
  • FONG EE 1 Feb 2018
    Family trip with dad and mom and they enjoyed it very much! Miss Suzuki is sweet and caring, she always observe whether we can follow her pace and offer help to take our photo at the nice spot. The deer and train experiences are cool too.
  • JOUSSEL KIM 19 Jan 2018
    I recommend this activity because we were able to visit Kyoto and Nara at the same time. Very good food, we ordered buffet and we enjoyed it. Maybe if the tour guidd could learn more english but overall it's fun!
  • Keeno Ray 19 Jan 2018
    A very hassle-free tour. Bit rushed but you can still see all the important spots. Will buy again next time.
  • Joanne Grace 7 Jan 2018
    We went there on Jan 1 so the place was a bit congested but even if there were a lot of people, it was a great experience. The tour was pleasant but the tour guide could have given more background or history about the places we visited. The temples, the bamboo forest, the giant buddha, the Togetsukyo bridge and the Katsura river, were all unforgettable. Please prepare to capture many beautiful photos because these sites are worth every click of your camera.
  • Kim Ing Elena 4 Jan 2018
    The Chinese guide explains and give more information.the English guide didn’t give much information. Not enough time at Arashiyama as the place is huge. Should have allocate more time there and lesser time at Nara park.
  • Serina Kanti MD 2 Jan 2018
    We enjoyed the tour very much. Guides were very helpful. The buffet was okay but I caught sight of the Chicken Sukiyaki/Hotpot and was quite impressed at the number of side dishes and the spread it offered. Regretted going for the buffet.
