Ancient and Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“This tour was amazing on many levels. From the beginning, communications were prompt, helpful, and clear. All questions and concerns were addressed. The tour preparation information was very helpful and appropriate, assisting in smooth transition for the tour. The tour guide, agenda, and opportunities for personal impute, made the tour like a customized personal tour. Attention to needs and wants of the participants was consistently attended to, making the tour so very pleasurable and memorable.”
Perfect for me
5 - Excellent
  • Dennis Laehn
“The group leader was very good and we were able to experience all the places well with little explanations/suggestions, which was exactly the right thing for me. If you expect to get every detail of every place like a museum tour, you may want to choose another option. However, after we had explored independently, the guide was able to answer most of the questions that arose.”
Unforgettable and a life changing journey!!
5 - Excellent
  • Narda Smithers
“The unique and quintessential approach that the team at this tour company showed me was paramount to my amazing, unforgettable and life changing journey through Japan. Their passion, knowledge and incredible commitment to my experience was brilliant and very much appreciated!! From graffiti lessons, sake making (& tasting), homestays, festivals, cultural immersion with traditional and futuristic adventures, I fell in love with Japan and this company was the successful match maker! Domo arigatogozaimashita ! See you again next year”

Kyoto - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Kyoto Tour Highlights

  • Take in the glittering Kinkaku-ji – the Golden Pavilion – a Zen pagoda decorated in gold leaf and with a sublime lakeside setting.
  • Stroll through the atmospheric seventeenth-century streets of Gion, home to Geisha girls and traditional teahouses.
  • Experience Shintoism at its most impressive at Fushimi Inari-Taisha shrine, where vermillion shrine gates contrast with the natural mountainside location.
  • Head to the top of the 131 metre Kyoto Tower for unparalleled panoramic views across the city.
  • Explore Japan’s Buddhist heritage at the temple of Kiyomizu-dera, dating back to 1633.
  • Stroll through the historic district of Gion that will leave you spellbound, and desperate to extend your Kyoto tour for as long as possible.

Kyoto Travel Tips

  • Japanese efficiency means Kyoto has a phenomenal public transport system. The great value Kyoto City bus pass offers unlimited travel and can be purchased from bus and train stations, as well as on buses themselves.
  • The popularity of the Kinkaku-ji Golden Pavilion means it can get very crowded. Aim to get there as early as possible, and outside of weekends and Japanese holidays.
  • Base yourself in Gion, not only the downtown historic district but also the site of most of the city’s entertainment, and you’ll be right at the heart of the action.
  • If you’re on a tight budget, consider having your main meals at lunchtime, when many restaurants offer cheaper set-price daily menus.
  • Bring an umbrella! Not only are they useful for any passing rain shower, but as the locals will soon demonstrate, they are also perfect for keeping the sun off!
