I willl take you a 8 hour tour of Kyoto. First we will visit the world-famous spot, Kinkakuji Temple or the Golden Pavilion where you see a breathtaking beauty. Then we will visit the Kyoto Imperial Palace where the emperors lived until the late 19th century. You can see the authentic Japanese architecture there. After eating lunch at a local restaurant, we will go to Nijo Castle, 400-year old original castle of shogun. The last place is Gion area. It's famous as a geisha district.
However, this tour is flexible depending on your request. Please let me know your request.
*Kyoto Imperial Palace is closed on Monday.
*Nijo Castle is closed on Tuesday in Dec, Jan, Jul and Aug, so we visit another destination.
If you are staying in Osaka instead of in Kyoto, it takes about one hour from your hotel to Kyoto, we have to rearrange the itinerary to complete the tour. Perhaps you will be able to visit three sites.
