What We Love About Kyoto

Despite its history of war and occurrence of fires in the past, the city of Kyoto has remained resilient, its unique beauty unrivaled. You will find that this city embodies "wabi-sabi", a part of Japanese philosophy which appreciates beauty in imperfection. As the place of origin of the Japanese geishas, get the chance to take a peek into their enigmatic and ancient art form. Spend a morning amongst the towering bamboo groves of Arashiyama, learn formal traditions such as kaiseki dining, or get acquainted with the Kinkaku-ji's serene environment. Best of all, walk through the long stretch of torii gates of Fushimi Inari-taisha as it leads to the forest of Mount Inari.

The itinerary is too rich! Too close! Too considerate! The tour guide is very professional, my partner and I will be late for the meeting time, we will gather at the bus, the tour guide will ask me whether it is safe and uncomfortable, and there is absolutely no problem of being late! The meal situation is also very comfortable, the explanation is also post-it, the itinerary is absolutely free, and I will choose klook next time🥰👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I searched the Internet and found that although Kyoto is good for sale, I am afraid that it will take time and I don’t know Japanese. Hey, I used klook to buy it all at once. After you buy it, you will need to fly in Kyoto for physical flight, and then you will first arrange for the burial (no picking) when the time comes, but at least you need to pre-develop the time when you set the itinerary in Hong Kong. I searched the Internet for Arashiyama Sagano, and there are many introductions, and some people study the direction to get the scenery first, but I personally focus on the most convenient way and I want to baa. It is recommended to buy a ticket if you live in Kyoto. If you don’t fly for one day, you will visit Arashiyama in Kyoto on the second day.
