Full-Day Tour to Explore Eminent Places

Begin your captivating full-day tour in Kyoto at the renowned Fushimi Inari Shrine, an iconic destination known for its world-famous crimson torii gates that adorn the entire Mt. Inari (233m/765ft). Explore the main shrine hall and the enchanting vermillion gate tunnel, a truly mesmerizing sight.

Continue your journey to central Kyoto, where you'll encounter the remarkable Sanjusangendo Temple, Japan's longest wooden structure. Inside, marvel at the 1001 statues of Kannon, the Buddhist saint of Mercy.

Visit the ancient Kiyomizu-dera Temple, dating back to before Kyoto became Japan's capital. Its wooden platform stage, the Kiyomizu Butai, constructed without nails, stands at four stories and was once a popular spot for making wishes.

In the afternoon, explore Kinkakuji Temple, a beloved destination adorned with real gold leaf, captivating visitors year-round with its radiant beauty.

Next, visit Kintano-tenmangu, a shrine dedicated to scholarship, originally built to appease an angry spirit. The shrine's surrounding entertainment district dates back to 1444 when a fire led to its construction, giving rise to Kyoto's first 'flower town' or Geisha district.
