What to expect

Take advantage of your jet lag and enjoy an early morning tour among the wonders of Kyoto! Along the way, your expert guide will give you insights about Buddhism, Japanese garden design, and history.

Begin your tour at the world-famous Fushimi Inari Shrine, where you'll see thousands of red gates line the path up the hillside. With the low early light casting long shadows here you can get some truly fantastic photos before all the crowds arrive. Then, make your way to Kiyomizu Temple where you will see the amazing World Heritage temple before the busses start to unload. This is a magical time to see the amazing temple complex and get a view of the city coming to life below you.

Make the journey across town to Arashiyama where you'll get to see the beautiful bamboo grove which, if you are lucky, will still be relatively quiet and great for getting some fantastic photos to cherish for a lifetime. Before leaving Arashiyama, you'll make a visit to one of the most beautiful zen temples in Kyoto, Tenryuji Temple a World Heritage Site with a radiant garden.
