Katsura Imperial Villa and Fushimi Inari

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.

Great time in Kyoto

Toshiyo was with us for two days visiting all the sights in Kyoto and Arashiyama. She helped inform us on the sites and what we were viewing while shopping. She was super helpful and we had a great time.

Kind and efficient guide

I've spent a very pleasant and instructive day in Kyoto with Toshi. She guided us to the Fushimi Inari shrine and the Gion area. Her tour was very efficient, without a dull moment while she was also very patient with us and listened attentively to our needs and requests. Kyoto has so much to offer, but we managed to make the most of our time with Yoshi's help.

Full day in Kyoto with Toshi - Great guide

Toshi met us at the railway station platform, straight off the bullet train. We had a full day (7 hours) in Kyoto, and Toshi crammed in 5 key places for our visit, including the Imperial Palace, NijoJo Castle, Gion, Fushimi Inari, and Golden Pavilion of sKinkaku-ji, using a mix of trains, buses, and taxis across Kyoto, making it great value. Whilst it was an intense day of moving from place to place, Toshi was aware that we only had one day before we had to return to Toyko later that evening, even changing the itinerary mid tour so we could fit everything in. Toshi is kind, and courteous with an enviable knowledge of her home city, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Toshi for your own trip.
