The ancient city of Kyoto is rich in Japan's most traditional cultural heritage and architecture. This unforgettable day tour will take you to a journey through Kyoto's essential historical and cultural stops, as well as a taste of traditional specialties in Japanese cuisine. The day begins with a trip to Kinkaku-ji Temple, one of Japan's most illustrious edifices, surrounded by beautiful green mountains and a clear lake. Next head to Gion, Japan's most famous geisha district, where you will experience a delicious Chanko-Nabe lunch, a stew traditionally eaten by Japanese sumo wrestlers! While you're there, you will be graced by the company of an actual geisha, Japan's highest form of entertainers. Geisha are typically reserved and difficult to spot, so make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity to take a photograph with them. You'll next head off to Kiyomizu-dera. This temple is Kyoto's oldest, a magnificent wooden building that displays the sheer beauty of the architecture in its time. At the end of the day, you'll be returned to your hotel bringing with you priceless memories of Japan's history.
