Tour of history, arts and culture


Nijo castle is not just an old castle but it is a great showcase of Japanese art, history and architecture. I will explain deep inside of this Nijo castle taking double time of standard tour. After that, we will visit Kyoto Imperial Palace and Nishiki market.

This tour will take you to the inside of the Japanese art scene, history of architecture and then take you to the centre of food culture.
You must be satisfied with this sophisticated and unique tour to feel another side of Kyoto than visiting temples & shrines.
Recommended to the art, history and food lovers or Kyoto repeaters!
