Let's walk the Philosopher's Path with a private guide


Kyoto's attractions spread across in the city and are mouthful to tell you. Let's enjoy walking the Philosopher's path and walk uphill and go shopping to Kiyomizu Temple.
When you hope less ups-and-downs tour in Kyoto, the Western area is better for you than Eastern area. Please check the Western area as well.

This tour plan starts your hotel in Kyoto city. When you start from your hotel in Osaka, it takes 60-90 minutes longer than it depending your hotel location.
Starts in Kyoto --- 7 hours,
Starts in Osaka --- 7 hours, but skip visiting 1 place of them because of the tour duration.
I can meet you at your hotel lobby (except for Airbnb and Guesthouse).

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

When you have two days to visit Kyoto, please check the 2-day tour #48830 later.

1. Silver Pavilion(UNESCO),
2. Philosopher's Path,
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 to 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 the temple, let's replace one from the list.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great day touring Kyoto with Hiroko. Definitely a 5 star day. Hiroko plotted out the most efficient route to all the sights we wanted to see, using all different forms of public transportation. We NEVER could have figured this out on our own. She also took us to a ramen place for lunch that left quite an impression. It was soooo delicious, I'm still thinking about it. Thank you Hiroko for a wonderful day!
