Enjoy the charms of Kyoto, Nara and Osaka with a friendly private guide
I offer you a 3-day tour full of landmarks of Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. This tour is perfect for first visitors to Kansai area. You can see the two ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara and modern city of Osaka.
On the first day, you will visit Kyoto to see Kinkakuji Temple(Golden Pavillion), Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market and Gion. You can see the traditional Japanese culture there.
On the second day, you will go to Nara, an older capital of Japan and has more nature. You will visit Yoshikien Japanese garden, Todaiji Temple (world-famous great image of Buddha), Nara Park (you're welcomed by tame deer), Kasuga Grand Shrine (peaceful place with lots of lantern) and Kofukuji Temple (fire-story pagoda).
On the last day, you will go to Osaka where you see both traditional and modern aspects. You will go to Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, Kaiyukan Aquarium and Umeda Sky Building Observatory.

I can also make a 2-day tour.
