What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, 68 Fukakusa Yabunouchicho, Fushimi, Kyoto 612-0882 Kyoto Prefecture

The spectacular tunnel of thousands vermilion torii gates is so famous and picturesque. These torii gates were offered by worshippers in appreciation of the good fortune they received from the deity enshrined here. Why don’t you, too, offer a prayer and change your luck?

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bamboo Forest Street, Sagaogurayama Tabuchiyamacho, Ukyo, Kyoto 616-8394 Kyoto Prefecture

The renowned bamboo forest with its subtle hues of green and the sun slanting through has an exceptional beauty. The rustling of the leaves and the creaking of the trunks softly swaying in the breeze have a very relaxing effect. It’s an experience that you shouldn't miss while being in Kyoto.

Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Stop At: Kinkakuji Temple, 1 Kinkakujicho, Kita-ku, Kyoto 603-8361 Kyoto Prefecture

This famous Zen temple is an icon of Samurai culture. Although it is a very popular tourist destination, the unique sight of the Golden Pavilion is well worth a visit. You can get wonderful pictures of the gilded building and its beautiful appearance reflected in the pond.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, 931 Bakuro-cho, Kita, Kyoto 602-8386 Kyoto Prefecture

This shrine built in 945 by the emperor of the time enshrines Sugawara no Michizane who is god of academics, and many students come here to pray for successful examinations. It is also called Tenjin (god of the universe) as it stands right under the polar star when looked at from Kyoto palace. The main building is designated as a national treasure.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Kamishichiken Kaburenjo Theatre, 742 Imadegawa Nanahonmatsu Nishiiru, Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto 602-8381 Kyoto Prefecture

There are five hanamachi (geisha) districts in Kyoto and one of them is Kamishichiken which is located right next to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. This district has fewer geisha houses and geiko and maiko, but the atmosphere around here is quieter and more relaxing.

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Nishiki Market Shopping District, 609 Nishidaimonjicho Tominokoji Dori Shijoagaru, Nakagyo, Kyoto 604-8054 Kyoto Prefecture

The Nishiki market, which has been popular with the people of Kyoto for 400 years, has 126 shops lined up in a 390-meter long street. Kyoto’s peculiar vegetables and pickles are sold and you can taste some. Let’s enjoy the walk while imagining the eating habits of the people of Kyoto

Duration: 40 minutes

You pay for your own transportation which is rail and bus. Recommend getting an ICOCA card to make life way easier on the day. This was a great tour, we had fun.
