Kyoto: Descending Arashiyama (Private)

Kyoto: Descending Arashiyama (Private)

star-5
2
Get away from the crowds and spend a wonderful day in Arashiyama which will undoubtedly stand out in your mind as you think back to your time here in Kyoto. We begin with a relaxing morning stroll through the lush garden of one of Japan’s first Zen temples dating back over 1,000 years. We then head into the foothills and as we peacefully stroll back to town we visit twelve hundred stone Buddhas on a hillside, an Edo period cafe, an ancient burial ground, a temple founded by two former geisha, a working pottery studio, the villa of a silent film actor, a majestic bamboo grove, and the "shrine of love'. All this as we browse shops filled with handmade goods and enjoy a delicious traditional lunch. Important Note: Each guest is required to bring an additional 5,500 yen (cash) for admission tickets and lunch.

Private Tour - Visit Temples Deep in the Mountain with 1000 years History

Private Tour - Visit Temples Deep in the Mountain with 1000 years History

star-3
1
You will travel more than an hour from central Kyoto to those spots on this tour. It might sound a bit nuisance to move a lot but the further from the central city, the more spots left from 1,000 years ago. There are many anecdotes unique to Kyoto such as one about a woman who evacuated from Kyoto under war, a ceiling board with blood stain of samurai’s who have suicided during the war, and so on. What would you think of at those spots with many thoughts of predecessors? You can lose yourself in thought while watching the garden at a temple and have Japanese green tea. Don’t forget to book your tour to visit temples and shrines deep in the mountain!

Cycling at Kyoto Higashiyama (Shimogamo jinja, Ginkakuji temple, Gion, etc)

Cycling at Kyoto Higashiyama (Shimogamo jinja, Ginkakuji temple, Gion, etc)

star-4

Let’s ride on a bike to explore Higashiyama, the most popular area among Kyoto, where many famous temples and shrines concentrated in. This area is well-known about its jam-up, since thousands of tourists visit at all times of the year. Resulted in overcrowded buses and even if you are luckily get in, the bus may not move forward. There are so many bus services provided by several companies which makes you confused. Yet people surround you maybe also tourists like you who know little about the area. Let’s not waste your time reading maps, waiting for buses, and traffic jams. After we leave Kyoto station, we will guide you several places: Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, Shimogamo jinja, Ginkakuji temple, Tetsugaku-no-michi Street (the philosophers' path), Eikando, and Nanzenji temple. We continue pedaling to Gion area then the most busiest area of Kyoto, Sanjyo and Shijyo-kawaramachi. You can either drop the bike at the place where the tour ends or keep pedaling until Kyoto station.

Get away from the crowded tourist sites and indulge on a private tour of some of Kyoto's most enchanting spaces. In a town whose history spans over 1,300 years, there are far more than just the "Top 10" that are worth visiting! Quiet Zen gardens, high ranking shrines, a local traditional lunch, a folk art museum and 1,001 Golden Buddha statues. This experience will introduce you to a world far away from the busy tourist sites, where you will spend peaceful moments getting to know the true nature of Kyoto. Note: Depending on our pace, all of the sites on this route may not be able to be visited. If the situation arises where we have to eliminate one or more of the sites the guest will determine what is eliminated.

In this tour, you will enjoy Japanese nature including animals and landscape at the foot of Mt. Arashiyama which is located on the west side of Kyoto and famous for its scenic beauty. Once this district was open only to the nobles. Located not so far from central Kyoto, this natural environment has been very well maintained up to the present day. That’s why you can interact with wild monkeys very closely. In the afternoon, you will visit the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji Temple), one of the most famous Zen temples in Japan that you won’t forget for the rest of your life.
