Fushimi Inari Taisha & Arashiyama: A Cultural & Natural Wonderland

Begin your immersive journey in the heartland of Japan's rich culture. An English-speaking guide will escort you on a comfortable round-trip bus journey, beginning with an 80-min trip to the Fushimi Inari Taisha. Wander through an enchanting tunnel of thousands of vermillion gates donated by hopeful businesses. Next, immerse in the serenity of Arashiyama, home to breathtaking cherry blossoms and the iconic Sagano Bamboo Forest. As you walk the 100-meter-long path here, pay attention to the calming whispers of the wind, which has also been featured in Japan's "100 Soundscapes" project.

Romantic Train Ride, Heritage Site with Culinary Delight

You can either discover your own culinary adventure in Arashiyama or opt for the locally-loved beef shabu shabu lunch or a diverse buffet lunch, offering a taste of authentic delicacies. Post-lunch, board the Sagano scenic railway, a romantic train ride that encapsulates Kyoto’s seasonal splendor. Capture unforgettable vistas of the Hozugawa River, surrounded by vibrant cherry blossoms, lush green summer foliage, or autumn's color palette. The day culminates with a 75-min exploration of Kiyomizudera, a UNESCO World Heritage site famed for its nail-less construction. The temple's wooden stage, suspended 13 meters above the ground by 139 pillars, offers breathtaking views of Kyoto. Round off your day with a comfy return to Osaka.
