~Perfect one day tour visiting Principal attractions in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan~ If you can only stay in Kyoto for one day, don't worry! I will take you to the best places to see and feel the essence of Japan. On this tour, we will take you on a one-day tour of Kyoto's "highlights" and talk a lot about Japanese culture, including the seasonal customs and traditions of the people who preserve them, as well as the historic tea ceremony. I am a local and have practiced the tea ceremony for many years, so I can explain the beauty of Japan and its traditions from two aspects: traditional beauty and practical beauty. You can learn a lot about Kyoto and Japan in one day while enjoying the authentic beauty of each spot. For example, by visiting both a Buddist temple and a Shinto shrine, you will also learn why the Japanese have two different religions. The tour ends in Gion, where you will also learn about geisha, an essential part of Kyoto. This tour includes two World Heritage Sites, Kinkaku-ji Temple and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. *This is a suggested itinerary and can be customized as you wish.
