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.

    Worthy tour for your itinerary! Though it would be better if tour starts earlier than 9am, the bamboo forest gets crowded.

    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!

    Private tour guide like our friends, our line of three people, followed him to travel Arashiyama, listen to his introduction to history, we also asked a lot of local things. This kind of private tour guide, although spent a lot, but worth it. And because it is not by coach, the next time they know how to appreciate the leaves.

    Very poor experience, the hotel shuttle service does not include the hotel in Osaka, but confirmed after the trip did not notice, said the line before the departure and then will confirm the letter, but did not receive! Results starting a day until the departure time no shuttle Contact the customer service to know no shuttle, to me and two old by the Osaka own car to the Kyoto rendezvous point! To the assembly point, the tour guide followed by a second group to bring, with good mountain traffic and take the attractions, I and two Old to go on their own, there is no tour guide service. Please indicate in the terms and conditions, please include only Kyoto. Personal experience: If there is no shuttle service from Osaka to Arashiyama, this trip is simply not worth such a price. Plus Arashiyama is not difficult to go, it is recommended to go to their own, but I bring two old map convenient.
