I booked the full course tour, but unfortunately nobody else did, so I was offered a place on the Northern tour and help to visit the sights I would miss. A friendly, relaxed and informative tour with Remy. Recommended!

Maybe we were spoiled with ideal weather and what turned out to be a private tour (no one else scheduled that day), but this was the absolute most perfect way to see some of the city and points of interest. If we weren't short on...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
