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.

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.
