Popular places of Kyoto with your own Local Guide
I am sure that you'll come to know Japanese tradition and culture by visiting these places. Of course we can arrange to visit the places which you would like to see in 8 hours.
Kyoto has more than 1000 years of history, so there are many temples, shrines and other world heritage sites. In those places I chose most popular sites. I am sure that you will be satisfied with them and you feel the Japanese atmosphere.
Kinkakuji temple is known as the temple of Golden Pavilion. It was built in the 14th century by Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. It is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Kyoto. After that, we'll visit Nijo castle, Kiyomisu temple and Gion district which are also must-see spots in Kyoto.
From your hotel we take a public transportation to Kinkakuji temple, Nijo castle, Kiyomizu temple and Gion district. Kiyomizu temple is located in the hill, so you have to walk 30 minutes from the bus stop and from Kiyomizu temple
you walk to Gion district one hour. Of course you can take a taxi if your are tired.
Our tour will end in the Gion district, or we can return to your hotel.

Akira did a great job. Very informative and pleasant. Just know you need to be prepared to walk a bit to catch the public transportation. I would book with him again as well as recommend him to others.
