Private tour (only you and your group)

The Higashiyama (eastern mountains) area of Kyoto is packed with World Heritage Sites and much if not all of it can be seen on foot. My idea is to break Higashiyama into its northern and southern areas. In this tour we will focus on southern part.

Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

Sannen-zaka and Ninnen-zaka lanes.


Kodai-ji Temple

Gion Area

What to Expect

The Higashiyama area is rich with temples, shrines, gardens, and other sightseeing spots spread along the Higashiyama mountain range that surrounds Kyoto from the east. Known as one of the most well-preserved districts when it comes to historical architecture, we can easily spend a whole day wandering the traditional streets of Sannenzaka and Ninnenzaka with dining and shopping just as easily found, everything you need for a trip to Kyoto can be found in Higashiyama.

Navigating the train system

We had an interesting and productive tour with Guya. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helped us to navigate the rail system and plan our travels with her expertise. She simplified what to us was a daunting process. We appreciated all her knowledge of Japan and recommendations for restaurants and must see sights. A lovely morning!

Excellent one day tour in Tokyo

She is the best, very knowledgeable and nice person, knows many many places from historical to modern to food and fashion.. tells stories and history about the place you visit. I really enjoyed the tour. Thank you Gulay.
