Visit & enjoy historical, traditional old town Kyoto using Shinkansen, bullet train with a private guide


Historical city, Kyoto is located 500km to the west of Tokyo. It looks far away but Shinkansen, bullet trains can help you go to this amazing, impecable city for 2. 5 hours. We visit must-go-places in Kyoto by private car or guided bus.

Over night tour Osaka & Kyoto is also possible.
Please contact me if you are interested in it.

Kyoto is the one of UNESCO world heritage sites of Japan, which served as Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from 794 to 1868. Although Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, countless temples and shrines and other historically priceless strucures remain. Because Kyoto was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and spared from air raids during World War II due to its historical value.
