What to Expect

This tour will take you to 3 historic places, Castle, Shrine and Temple.

Nagoya Castle, which holds golden statue of fish on top of the roof. (2 to 3 hours visit)

Each castle has it’s role and character. This one is unique one, decorated with Golden fish shaped statue on the castle tower.

Why gold? why so special? I will be introducing you the history and story of this castle while we walk around.

(Please note that the main tower has gone into the restoration and unable to see inside)

Atsuta Shrine, the Shrine deeply conected with the imperial family. (1 to 2 hours visit)

The shrine is the place where we enshrine the Shinto dietys, but this one is a bit special.

On our visit, we will focus on how the japanese people belive in shintoism.

Osu Temple, the Buddhist temple which is close to citizens daily life. (30 minuit visit )

One of the interesting things in Japan, is that people would believe in different religion at same time.

On this tour you will see both Shintoism and Buddhist elements which influenced the life of the Japanese.

After visiting the Temple, we can either explor the shopping streets or finish the tour.

Nagoya also has delicious local dishes such as;

Grilled eel which has different texture compared to Tokyo style,

Flat Udon noodles with rich broth,

Pork cutlet flavored with thick red Miso(soybean paste) sauce,

and many more.

We can stop by for any these and of course any other Japanese cuisine that you with to enjoy.

A great use of time and a very professional guide.

We were in town for a conference and our sightseeing time was somewhat limited. I am so glad we were able to find Fuhito, as he made the full day packed with some of the best arts, culture, dining, history, and just a great day. Fuhito was able to add tremendous value by sharing the whole story of the many sights we visited. We felt like we were getting the inside scoop as he toured us around.

Thank you for choosing me as your guide! I am happy to see that you enjoyed my tour and the atmosphere of Kyoto. I myself also enjoyed going around Kyoto with you and sharing the stories coloring the entire day. I hope now you are more interested about our country and culture, which makes you want to visit again. Looking forward to see you again some day!

Perfect way to spend a day at Kyoto - getting around with Fuhito san

Fuhito san speaks perfect English, and is a very professional, friendly tour guide with a deep knowledge about the area. I highly reccommend to book his time slot if you are planning to spend some time in Kyoto, especially if your visit is for the very first time like us - Even though we contacted him on the day before the arrival, he was able to schedule and manage the perfect sightseeing plan which we truly enjoyed. Thank you so much Fuhito san, we look foward to seeing you by chance again!

Fuhito K.

Thank you for choosing me as your guide! We had a wonderful time exploring around Kyoto together, and I hope you are more interested about my country. I am looking forward to see you again some time. See you again!
