Explore the enchanting Arashiyama district of Kyoto by foot and boat on this half-day tour. Like much of Kyoto, Arashiyama is temple central, and the best way to learn about its sights is from a guide. Do just that and explore the gardens of UNESCO-listed Tenryū-ji Temple; visit the tree walk at Sagano Bamboo Grove; admire the temples of Jojakko-ji; and learn about Togetsukyo Bridge, which straddles the Oi River. Finish with a lunch cruise with views of Mt Arashiyama. The tour includes round-trip train transport from Kyoto.
  • Half-day walking tour of Sagano-Arashiyama in Kyoto
  • Stroll around the Zen temple gardens of Jojakkoji and the UNESCO-listed Tenryuji to see fall foliage or cherry blossoms
  • Take a scenic walk through the Sagano Bamboo Grove
  • Capture photos of Togetsukyo Bridge, Arashiyama’s top landmark
  • Take a 1-hour Yakatabune boat ride on the river and enjoy a bento box lunch

This was one of my favorite tours in Japan. I love the smaller group setting, walking in the beauty of the outdoors, and topped off with a lunch on a traditional Japanese row bow!

Had to deduct one star as a result of our guide getting off at the wrong station and leaving 10 of us wondering what on earth was going on. Another start for the impatience and unhelpfulness of office staff when I called, even suggesting that we had not listened to instructions properly.

Great tour, fun day.

Really disappointing Aviator! The whole tour is a fraud for the money you are charging!
Anyone can access the places we visited for less than half the price you are charging this so called 'tour'!!... and lunch in the little boat at the river is nothing but the scenery... the food was average almost bad if compared with the many options one has to eat in the area... Where is the value for money??? Honestly, is like a prank!

We booked this easy DIY half day trip was, to try to have a more informative guide.Unfortunately, our guide didn't prepare his job well. Even there were signs in Japanese, he couldn't explain more.. His English was intermittent . The lunch on the boat was serene though. Can take train yourself

Really enjoyed this tour... 8.25 pick up. On the train with guide then great walk through bamboo and gardens and then best of all the lunch on the boat. the lady playing the pipe on the hill side made it a truly magical experience. Would recommend planning to stay in the area for the afternoon.
