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

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.

Day 2

Kyoto Morning Half Day 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.
