Kyoto is commonly renowned as Japan’s cultural capital, and most beautiful region. This four-day, three-night tour allows you the chance to explore the highlights of Kyoto, led by an expert Backyard Travel guide who will reveal the secrets and history of the fascinating city.

Explore Kyoto with a tour around the city’s World Heritage Sites such as Nijo Castle, as well as a tour of Kinkakuji, a stunning Buddhist Temple also known as ‘Golden Pavilion Temple’. You’ll also journey to the Daitoku-ji Zen temple complex and the Daisen-in sub-temple.

Spend time engrossed in the art of Japanese food. You will learn about the indigenous ingredients by visiting ‘Kyoto’s Kitchen’ – Nishiki Market, which is well-known in the city as a haven for foodies and learn the secrets of preparing the delicious cuisine itself in a traditional wooden town house.

In Nara you will visit some spectacular temples and shrines such as Todaiji Temple (The Great Eastern Temple), Daibutsuden (Big Buddha Hall), and Kasuga-taisha (Kasuga Grand Shrine) before returning to Kyoto to visit Kiyomizu Temple (Pure Water Temple), a temple which was amazingly built without using any nails.
