About
The temples of Kyoto are vestiges of its captivating past, and the stories surrounding these ancient places of worship define Japan’s iconic cultural city. Go in-depth into the country’s main religion of Buddhism, discover the true meaning of “Zen,” explore breathtaking scenery and architecture, all with your favorite local host on this personalized tour. Step into a stunning temple built by an emperor in the 12th century. See thousands of Buddha statues displayed in a giant hall, many of which are influenced by Hinduism. There’s more to see! Join your host and tour a Shingon sect temple, acclaimed for its expertly crafted sculptures dating back to the 1100s. Hear the life story of a local savior and see the statue modeled after him. For more historic temples and landmarks, follow your favorite local to a richly decorated temple with picturesque zen gardens, dedicated to a shogun who unified Japan. Also, explore old tea houses and tranquil bamboo forests within the temple!

Kyoto day tour with locals
Jan. 2020 • Family
We're glad we hired Ren for our day tour of Kyoto. She's a very
friendly and caring person. We have exchanged messages until we
finally decided on our itinerary. Ren was very helpful in making sure
we get the best during our time with her. Highly recommend her
services.
