What To Expect

Located in the western outskirts of Kyoto, Arashiyama is famed for its beautiful scenery and well-preserved ancient royal court. Enter the former villa of late actor Okochi Denjiro, the Okochi Sanso Villa – take a stroll through the traditional Japanese garden rumored to be built by Denjiro as a picture of everlasting beauty (not the deteriorating beauty captured on film). Explore one of Kyoto's great Zen temples, the Tenryuji Temple – built in 1339 by the shogun Ashikaga Takauji in honor of the late Emperor Godaigo, with a number of vantage points offering the best views of Arashiyama. Complete your journey at iconic Togetsukyo Bridge, the 'Moon Crossing Bridge', known for beautiful reflections in the Oi River.

    We had a slight confusion on the redemption of this voucher because it didn't exactly say what or who to look for. We were at Kyoto Central station by 9AM, but we didn't know if we're supposed to claim the voucher on a kiosk, meet a person, or look for a tour bus. We spent around 45 minutes trying to find how to claim the voucher. When we decided to just go ahead on our own, we finally found our tour guide by the train station with a placard with my name on it. Would've saved all that time if we knew who or what to look for. Also, the local numbers indicated on the vouchers weren't working. :( Fortunately, despite the confusion, our tour guide Yuki was very patient and fluent in English. She took us to all the nice spots in Arashiyama and told a lot of history and trivia which we would've not known without a tour guide. She definitely made the mishap and trouble very worth it!

    Our tour guide, Ms Eml Matsuda, was a nice & friendly guide. Every place we went, she will explained the history to us. It was a great tour.

    非常差的體驗,酒店接送服務不包括大阪的酒店,但確認行程後沒有通知,說著行出發前一又會再出確認信,但又沒有收到!結果出發一天等到出發時間未見接送再聯絡客服才知道沒有接送,要我與兩老由大阪自行坐車到京都集合點!到集合點後,導遊接著有第二團要帶,交帶好嵐山交通及要走的景點後,我與兩老就自行前往,完全沒有導遊服務。請於條款及填表時註明接送只包括京都。 個人感受:若沒有接送服務由大阪至嵐山,這個行程根本不值這樣的價錢。加上嵐山並不難前往,建議自行前往則可,只是我帶上兩老圖方便。
