Our tours are private tours and the tour fee is for the group of your own. We do not mix tours with other groups.
This tour is recommended for those who would like to visit the major sites, especially if you only have one day to spend in Kyoto. You will visit world heritage sites, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Yasaka Taisha Shrine, and the famous Higashiyama area through Sannenzaka slope filled with shops and cafes. We will then show you the street of lively Nishiki Food Market Street. The market is for good lunch venues. Thus, we will help you choose a good lunch near-by. For those who have more days in Kyoto, we suggest that the best way is to take our Tour 1 first and then take this Tour 2 on the second day as this route is almost all the time crowded with loads of tourists.
***Please note that with recent extreme crowd at Nishiki Food Market street, if the guide felt it is not possible to enjoy the walk through the market, the guide will make a small arrangement to include another place and will show you the location of the market so that you can come back on your own after the tour, preferably between 5pm and 6pm.
At 9am in the lobby of your Kyoto hotel/ryokan or in the lobby of Kyoto Granvia Hotel in the Kyoto Station Building.
