Tour covers the must-see modern and historic sites in Kyoto with a private guide


Kyoto's history as the capital of Japan is over 1000 years, so the major sightseeing places are scattered in the city. If you travel Kyoto only for one-day, you'll be realized the limited time makes you very rushy.
I recommend you to join this tour and have a great time for two days.

This tour plan starts your hotel in Kyoto city. When you start from your hotel in Osaka, please understand the situation below.
Starts in Kyoto --- 7 hours each day,
Starts in Osaka --- 7 hours but skip visiting 1 of them each day because of tour duration.
I can meet you at your hotel lobby (except for Airbnb and Guesthouse).

Tour price costs per group, not per person.
"Estimated Local Cost Needed" costs per person, not per group.

Please prepare JPY in cash and to remove your shoes at entrance when you enter the Japanese buildings.

3. Heian Jingu Shrine,
4. Gion area,
5. Fushimi Inari Shrine,
including lunch stop.
If you wish, I can finish the tour at Gion area to walk and shop around.

-IMPORTANT-
Kiyomizudera Temple(UNESCO) is excluded from the list because the renovation construnction started in January 2017 and finish in 2020. The main "wooden veranda" will be covered during the period and travelers walk to the temple for 15 minutes on the slope because it's on the mountain area. If you'd like to see Kiyomizudera temple, let's replace one from the list.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hiroko was absolutely wonderful as a guide. For two days she walked us through so many beautiful temples, parks and paths, seamlessly combining undergrounds, buses, trolleys and local trains to cover sights all over Kyoto's spectacular landscape. Hiroko gave us a wonderful education in Japanese culture, traditions and food as we explored the city with her. We could not have found a better teacher and companion for our first Kyoto visit.
