Eager to explore Japan? Tick off your Japan bucketlist on your visit to Kyoto and Nara cities in the beautiful Nara prefecture, convenient weekend getaway destinations if you're coming from Osaka! Discover the best of Honshu island on this sightseeing tour with multiple pick up locations at VIP Villa Namba and the Kyoto VIP Lounge within city limits. Journey through the city via a direct bus connection and witness the breathtaking transition from the urban state to the lush foliage that gives off that authentic countryside vibe every tourist is on the lookout for. Arrive at the Fushimi Inari Shrine, an important Shinto shrine famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates leading to the wooded forest of Mount Inari, also covered by the shrine's grounds. Next, you're headed for lunch (at own expense) in the breathtaking Arashiyama, offering a sacred and tranquil atmosphere thanks to the lush bamboo mangroves. Visit Kinkakuji next, another place of worship that served as the retirement villa of the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu that then became a Zen temple of the Rinzai sect shortly after his death. Afterwards, head to Nara Park and Tōdai-ji Temple, all prized possessions in the heart of the city. Nara Park houses over 1,200 roaming deers that have become a natural treasure. Sitting in the midst of the large park is the Tōdai-ji Temple, a spectacular sight during the autumn season with warm-toned leaves hovering the World Heritage temple that makes for a photographic moment. The tour ends as you head to your bus accommodation back to your origin destinations in Kyoto and Osaka.
