Overview of your Kyoto tour:

Kyoto locals often boast of Kyoto as the 1100-year capital city of Japan, but it has long since changed. The emperor moved to Tokyo, accompanied by aristocrats and his officers. The population of Kyoto decreased by one-third. The people left in Kyoto were quite discouraged. To encourage them, one big project was undertaken: the Lake Biwa Canal, connecting Kyoto to Lake Biwa, 30 km long; half of the way is tunneled. Several years ago, to become a guide, I walked around Kyoto and visited many temples and shrines. I became able to guide clients to their satisfaction, but I felt something essential was lacking and couldn't identify what it was. Then I encountered the Canal, where some of its facilities were abandoned, but most are still in operation. It was spectacular, and I thought I felt the living breath of Kyoto's people. I wanted to share my sensation with my clients. Soon, it became one of my best tours. Yes, this tour is the one! Please join me to explore modern Kyoto (as well as its historic sites).
