Katsura Imperial Villa and Fushimi Inari cover image

Katsura Imperial Villa and Fushimi Inari

Kyoto
4 hours

Katsura Imperial Villa is too beautiful to express! In the early Edo period, Prince Toshihito, who excelled in both literature and the martial art from childhood, built the Villa. That is both tasteful and simple. We need to apply for the Imperial Household Agency to get in. I will apply for you by postcard. It takes an hour to see the villa by the special guide of the villa. The fee is free.

Kyoto day visit

Toshi was well on time and gave us useful information about the visited points. We could only cover 4 points due to widespread location of the points in the itenary. Toshi was too quick to navigate and felt she was in a rush to complete the tour. The tour lacked planning overall that didn’t allow to complete the intended points.

Usha P.

Thank you for the kind review. I was happy that we could visit all the scattered places you mentioned with public transportation and walking only.

Delightful day in Kyoto with Toshiyo

Toshiyo skillfully took us around Kyoto’s transport system which ensured we were not daunted without her on the following few days. We visited the Kiyomizu-sera temple, the Sanjusangen-do Buddhist temple and the Motorikyu Nijo castle. Her depth of knowledge about the history and tradition of these sites were very interesting and enhanced our experience greatly. Toshiyo’s English is perfect to the Brit abroad and she was easy to understand even in crowded locations. We will treasure our day with her forever.
