Tours - Kyoto Package

Day 1: ARASHIYAMA BAMBOO FOREST MORNING & TEA CEREMONY AT GION & GINKAKUJI TEMPLE WALKING TOUR 

We begin with a dive into the culinary culture of Kyoto, with a meet up at the Nishiki Market. There you will find a covered food festival famed all around the country for its unique, high-quality ingredients and colorful flavors

We then walk the back streets of Kyoto to a sake brewery for a tour and tasting experience. 

After shopping, we head to a traditional townhouse where we take a Japanese cooking class. Learn about miso soup, rolled sushi, and cooked salad native to the people of Kyoto. 

Meal: None
Hotel: B Asakusa or Shiba Park or Tokyo Marriot 
 

Day 2: KYOTO BACKSTRESS BIKING & GEISHA EXPERIENCE

This morning, we meet up for yet another fun experience biking through the streets of this ancient city. We pass through the lovey Miyagawa-cho and Gion, which are famous for teahouses and high-class geisha. We bike by the river to the Imperial Palace Park to see the gardens. 

Next we pass by the Kamogawa, which is lined with sakura cherry trees in the spring and lit with outdoor balcony restaurants in the summer. Townsfolk and tourists have relaxed on the banks of the river and enjoyed the views for centuries - scenes of this area pop up in woodblock prints from the Edo Period.

The bike can be lent to you until 7 in the evening at no extra charge, so take your time to bike around the city further if you like. 

In the afternoon, you can put on a kimono and white geisha makeup and walk the streets for a real Kyoto feeling. We arrange photographs for you in kimono at picturesque locations so that you can impress friends and family back home.

Day 3: ARASHIYAMA BAMBOO FOREST MORNING & TEA CEREMONY AT GION & GINKAKUJI TEMPLE WALKING TOUR 




A suburb of Kyoto, Arashiyama is famous for its hotsprings and bamboo forests. We take you to the Okochi Mountain Villa, once home to a samurai film star and now open to the public. There are many beautiful buildings and gardens preserved here, including tea houses and a zen meditation hall. Enjoy green tea by the gardens and take a stroll through the bamboo forest. 

Nearby in the market, you will find bamboo-based crafts not just for tourists, but made for practical use even today. Japanese people come from all over to country to purchase locally-made fans, toothpicks, incense, wooden bowls, fabric and accessories from this area. 

We also visit the Nonomiya, a shinto shrine visited by imperial princesses since the 12th century for the purpose of purification, and Tenryuji, an ancient structure that was not only a temple, but a residence for many emperors of eras gone by. 

In the afternoon, visit Ginkakuji - the silver temple - and walk the Philosopher's Path, known for the inspiration it has given artisans, writers and scholars for centuries. Then, experience a tea ceremony and relax with Japanese sweets and wabi-sabi.
