Kyoto, one of the oldest cities in Japan, overflows with natural allure, cultural reverence, and ancient architecture. If you've been waiting to catch sight of the city’s enchanting cherry blossoms, waterfalls, ancient shrines, and magical forests, this tour is for you!

Scenic Views on Sagano Train Ride

Board the Sagano train and enjoy a ride among serene views. The Togetsukyo bridge spanning the Hozugawa River, and the towering bamboo stalks swaying at Arashiyama bamboo make for picture-perfect sights. In the spring, feast your eyes on the cherry blossoms in bloom, and in autumn, see leaves turn deep orange.

Fushimi-Inari Taisha and Kiyomizu-dera Temple

Fushimi-Inari Taisha is the head shrine for the 30,000 Inari shrines in Japan, where you can take a stroll along the long Torii tunnel, and discover fox statues scattered throughout the shrine. Kiyomizu-dera temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies on the foothills of Mount Otowa. This temple is famous for being built without the use of a single nail. Its Main Hall rests on a wooden stage soaring 13 meters above the hillside. Return to Namba Station and end the tour with your newfound insight into the culture of Kyoto city.
