Discover the real Kyoto while cruising the streets of Japan’s cultural capital on locals' preferred mode of transport - the humble bicycle. See shrines, temples, cherry trees, and mountains - this is an enlightening escape from the city.
Start the day cycling along the Kamo River and take in the views of the city’s downtown and traditional riverside restaurants. Then stop by the Heian-Jingu Shrine, built in 1894 to commemorate the 1,100 anniversary of the foundation of the capital. Next, make your way along quaint canals to reach the impressive Nanzenji Temple, one of the most important Zen temples in all of Japan. Soak up the surroundings before jumping back on your bike and heading off down the Path of Philosophy. Arguably the most popular walking path in Kyoto, the Path of Philosophy is shaded by hundreds of cherry trees that erupt into bloom every April. Cycle back towards Kyoto Station, along a beautiful canal with old teahouses and traditional bathhouses among the cherry trees and traditional narrow backroads. The tour will end at the city's station.
