Once the imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto is another city with a diverse past. The city is home to over 2,000 places of worship, including Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.
Our Kyoto Short Stay itinerary has been intricately designed for those who wish to see iconic sites and magnificent treasures. You'll travel with the assurance that all your arrangements are taken care of. You will be accompanied by our industry-leading guides whose unparalleled knowledge and talent will turn your tour into an unforgettable experience.
Make your own way to your Kyoto hotel. The rest of the day is at your leisure.
Enjoy a full-day tour exploring Kyoto with your Local Guide utilising the public transport system. Visit Nijo Castle built in 1603 and continue to Kinkaku-ji, the Golden Pavilion. Originally built as a retirement villa for the Shogun, at his request it became a Buddhist temple after his death. Next visit the Daitoku-ji Zen Temple
complex, which consists of a main temple and 22 sub-temples. Walk the mile-long Nishiki covered food markets. Walk through the back streets and lanes of Kyoto and visit a former sake brewery for sake tasting. Finish at a traditional wooden townhouse for your Japanese cooking class. Learn how to make rolled sushi, miso soup and cooked salad with seasonal fruit for dessert, and enjoy the results for dinner. (B,D)
