Take the train to Kyoto with your local host, and discover another side of Japanese culture in its 8th-century capital. From discovering the centuries-old architecture of Kyoto Imperial Palace to catching a glimpse of a mesmerizing geisha along the cobbled streets of Gion, you’ll experience what makes Kyoto unique. You could explore the Fushimi sake district and sample fresh sake at a historic brewery, taste authentic wagashi (sweets) at Nishiki Market or experience a traditional tea ceremony. Visit the Fushimi Inari shrine and marvel at its famous, flame-colored tunnel or let your host reveal a hidden temple to you - whatever you choose to do, you’ll discover more than just the Kyoto that’s in guidebooks.
With your host taking care of transport, you’ll arrive stress-free in Kyoto, and ready to explore. Explore the cobbled streets of Gion, the traditional entertainment district which is in the very heart of Kyoto along the right bank of the Kamo River. At dusk, the paper lanterns of intimate izakaya bars are lit and you could spot geisha floating through the streets and visit Yasaka Shrine. The renowned Fushimi sake district is one of Kyoto’s most southerly wards (neighborhoods), whilst in neighboring Higashiyama, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you explore crooked lanes lined with traditional wooden buildings. Or, why not visit Arashiyama in western Kyoto and stroll through the breathtaking bamboo grove?
