Explore the majestic shrines of Japan’s ancient capital.


This 3-day Kyoto trip is an ideal addition to your Japan itinerary, taking in arguably the country’s most picturesque city.

Staying in the Kyoto Hotel, you’ll enjoy amazing views over a region that comes alive with the colours of its changing seasons. It’s a magical backdrop for this special UNESCO World Heritage designated city, which contains 17 listed sites, plus a multitude of other important temples and shrines. You could easily spend weeks exploring them all, but a morning tour of the highlights will get you off to a good start. This includes Nijo Castle, the Golden Pavilion, and Kyoto Imperial Palace. Then take the afternoon at your own pace to explore the rest of the city.

Morning Half Day Kyoto Tour

Set out to explore some of Kyoto's most famous sites and discover the history behind this one thousand year capital. Tour Nijo Castle, noted for its gorgeous interiors and its "squeaky" nightingale floors which alerted residents to unwanted intruders (if Nijo Castle is closed, visit Ryoanji Temple instead). Continue to Kinkakuji Temple, famous for its Golden Pavilion covered entirely in thin layers of pure gold as well as for its exquisite Japanese gardens and koi ponds. Afterwards, visit Kyoto's Imperial Palace and gain exclusive access to the former residence of the Emperor of Japan (if the Palace is closed, visit Kitano Tenmangu Shrine instead). The tour ends at Kyoto Station (12:40-1:00pm) from where you can return to your hotel or continue to explore the city on your own.
