Sites are wonderful but Tour is really for Japanese. Headphones are provided for English but our guide spoke nonstop in Japanese into mic and we could not hear recorded commentary.
Most of the actual walking is self guided. We were all fit so not a...More
Only do these tours if you can understand Japanese.
We did a half day tour visiting three temples. The tour guide spoke in Japanese which we did not understand. We were given headphones so we could listen to English audio. This was not good as...More
The tour is only in Japanese not a word in English.This tour is not for any elderly as the tour needs you to climb steps and uphill.the tour guide said depart at 450 Pm .At 1715 hrs we realised the bus had left from the...More
I think the capacity of the bus is not enough to accomodate the numbers of tourist. We had to stand and the space in the bus very squeezy.
It would be better for somebody incharge of the transportation system to limit the number of people...More
Arriving Kyoto station early afternoon, I passed there kiosk and saw there were opening in an evening tour. I stopped to ask and the one I had inquired about was Japanese only. They recommend one that had translation devices.

I love hop ons/off. I get to see the city and listen to a little history and stories about what i am looking at.
First if you're not Japanese you have to pay to listen to the audio as well as leave a deposit. In...More
We booked the afternoon tour that leaves Kyoto Station at 12.30. We were with my Japanese Mum, so when the tour guide asked if we wanted translation devices, she said no. Big mistake #1. With the device comes a pack with greater detail about where...More

We did a day tour with a tour bus company and saw 6 temples / shrines ... At some we would have liked to look around longer, and others we saw ourselves on the next and previous days. A much cheaper option is to get...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
