Explore the historic streets and fascinating culture of ancient Kyoto on a pedal-powered tour driven by an informative guide. Sit back and relax as your driver whisks you past some of the most fascinating sites in this former imperial capital.
Start your trip by meeting your guide at a time of your choosing from either Arashiyama or Higashiyama (please select your preferable duration and location at checkout). From there, climb aboard your authentic rickshaw, a two passenger vehicle invented in Japan in the 19th century. This relaxed ride offers the perfect up-close method to view some of the most notable temples and streets of historic Kyoto, many of which can be difficult to explore on foot due to the distances between them. Along the way your guide shares various details about the history and importance of the town’s principal attractions.
Among the attractions you might visit during your ride are Togetsu-kyo Bridge, Nonomiya Shrine, Rakushisya’s Cottage (home of one of Japan’s most renowned poets), Heian Jingu Shrine, and Nanzen-Ji Buddhist temple. For a full itinerary description, review the two options listed below.
