Kyoto is a cultural hub, and that means there’s plenty of art, architecture and history to immerse yourself in. Your host will lead you to landmarks like the Fushimi Inari Shrine, the most revered in Japan, where locals pray for safety and prosperity. But heads up - there are over 1700 shrines and 3000 temples in Kyoto! You could visit Sanjusangendo, a magnificent temple that’s been around for nearly 1000 years, or Nijo Castle in Kimigyo Ward is another scenic visit, and it forms just one part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your Kyoto expert will keep you well-fed with local delicacies like mitarashi dango sweets and ramen noodles (with a fiery twist), plus all the matcha-infused treats you want!
All aboard this train to Kyoto, Japan’s cultural capital where the glory and majesty of the past have been immaculately frozen in time for all to see. You’ll join your local host to catch the bullet train from Osaka, a journey which takes only 15 minutes to cover 56km! In Kyoto, your host will lead you along picturesque pathways and cobbled streets which are flanked by historic buildings - which are protected by law - making it a far cry from the skyscraper-dominated metropolises elsewhere. You could wander the woods in Arashiyama, on the western outskirts, where bamboo thickets shroud ancient shrines, or you could find yourself enthralled in a traditional tea ceremony at the in Gion, Kyoto’s famous geisha district.
