Relax in a soothing natural atmosphere in Kyoto Arashiyama!


To the west of Kyoto center, there is another tourist area called Arashiyama.
It is fantastic for its beautiful natural surroundings.
In this tour, we are going to walk around a few places you like in Arashiyama and relax in the "onsen" (hot spring bath).

Itinerary

After we meet at your place in Kyoto, we will go to Arashiyama area. It will take up to 1 hour to get there, depending on your place of stay and transport.
At Arashiyama, 3 places and activities are planned, 1 before and 2 after lunch.
Those activities are not pre-fixed and should be decided with discussion because this is a private tour.
I have some recommendations:
Walking through Bamboo Forest. Beautiful and quiet green scenery.
Lunch. Let me know your food preference!
Climbing Iwatayama and visit monkey park, where you can interact with and feed wild monkeys.
Making your own fragrance workshop

After enjoying these activities, we are going to onsen(hot spring) to relax.
