Night scenery of Kyoto from this bus was very splendid. Chion-in Sanmon gate and Heian-jingu Shrine were in particular fantastic and splendid. As the temples of Kyoto close early in the evening, I think that this night bus tour is valuable for the international travelers.

This bus is the best for looking around Kyoto after closing temples and shrines. The pagoda of Toji temple and Heian Jingu Shrine is very good. Chion-in temple San-mon in the night is extremely beautiful.

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
