Culture、History & Architecture、Nature






Kyoto is known as exotic sightseeing places and numerous historic, quaint old monuments are
seen all over the town. This tour covers part of Rakusei (West district) and Central district.
Visiting Rakusei, Tenryu-ji Temple represents the Kitayama culture. Nijyo-jo castle, Kyoto
Imperial Palace in Rakuchu (Central district) are the cultural center during Heian, Momoyama
and Edo periods.


Arashiyama changes its color from season to season and Sagano is a tranquil spot, beloved by
emperors and nobles. Bamboo grove make you feel romantic and become a movie star. A
shrine called Nonomiya-shrine built in the midst of grove, may help you find a partner for life
soon. Fantastic to walk a beautiful bridge, Togetsu Bridge and listen to the murmuring of the
Katsura river. Carefully maintained and preserved Bamboo grove is also a must-see-spot. The
head temple of the Tenryu-ji branch of the Rinzai Sect of Zen Buddhism has both a botanic
garden and a gorge-water garden, borrowed landscape from Mt. Arashiyama to part of the
garden. Tokugawa shogunate came to an end in this castle, Nijyo-jo castle in 1867 with the
announcement of hand over the authority back to the Experor by last Shogun, Tokugawa
Yoshinobu. Kyoto Imperial Palace was partly open to public from July 26, 2016 and is held
in high regard as a piece of Japan's cultural heritage. Nijyo-jo castle and Kyoto Imperial
Palace will tell you long historical tale in Kyoto from 794 to 1867.
