Autumn in Kyoto

Start your journey in Osaka, and explore the ethereal Sanzen-in Temple; a thousand-year-old site known for the oldest garden in Japan, "Yusei-en". Immerse yourself in the temple's tranquillity, made magical with the changing autumnal foliage. With an expert guide, uncover the secrets of this Tendai Sect temple.

Bamboo haven

When you get to the Arashiyama and Sagano area, you'll be surrounded by cultural heritage and natural beauty. Visit ancient temples, and rent kimonos and rikshaws. Walk through the iconic bamboo grove, from Nonomiya Shrine to Okawachi Villa, an offbeat experience, where you'll listen to the hushed whispers of the wind through the bamboo leaves - a phenomenon aptly called 'Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody'. Your guide will share the rich stories of the area's ancient temples, including the World Heritage Site, Tenryu Temple. End your day at Arashiyama Station's foot bath, a hidden gem mirroring the design of JR Kyushu Yufuin Station. As you enjoy a traditional foot soak, you can delight in seasonal sweets from a local store, adding a sweet finish to your day.
