What To Expect

Explore and learn about some of Japan's most significant cultural sites and traditions in this day tour of Kyoto and Nara. Upon getting picked up from your hotel in Osaka, you will be driven to Nara Park which is well known not just for its traditional features but also for the hundreds of bowing deer which call the park home. Purchase some deer feed and make friends with the friendly deer who are sure to come to say hello. Then you visit Kasuga Taisha Shrine, the most significant in Nara, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then you'll head for Kyomizudera Temple, one of the most celebrated in all of Japan and known for its elevated platforms. You will have plenty of free time to have lunch and explore before you head to the picturesque Arashiyama bamboo forest, where the serenity of the rustling bamboo evokes the harmonious atmosphere that Japan is renowned for. Now when you book this tour you'll also get a FREE Harukas 300 observatory pass for fantastic views over Osaka, to use on a date chosen by you.

    Great trip especially in Nara park. Recommended tour and feel different compare to others visitting destination. Driver is very accomodating... cheers.
  • Azlan*** 12 Aug 2017
    Our tour was spoilt by non english speaking guide in which Arashiyama we were let off clueless to directions. Confirmation e-mail also came late and in chinese so we couldnt verify. Other than that I would personally take Kyoto and Arashiyama while Nara was too ambitious as a third destination. More time needed in the former two lovely places. Overall a good tour just marred by the wrong guide, wished Klook would have inforned earlier
  • Chun*** 25 Jul 2017
    always late He is a driver only instead of a tour guide. Everything was in a rush.
  • PAULINE*** 15 Jun 2017
    Such an enjoyable tour! With amazing tour guides! Tiring but worth it.
  • Gina*** 12 Jun 2017
    The tour guides have a thick accent when speaking English and the tours are kind of rushed so you don't get to spend much time on each site.
  • Perlita*** 7 May 2017
