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.

“ So much fun! ”

I truly enjoyed my Kyoto ghost tour with Gulay. She was very outgoing and knowledgeable and told the tales in an engaging manner. I recommend it to anyone looking for a spooky night in!
