Board the bus and make yourself comfortable for a day of exploring the off-the-beaten-path locations that offer excellent cherry blossom viewings.

Hiei, surrounded by a lovely garden. Takaragaike Park is surrounded by a natural forest, with Takaragaike Pond located in the center. 
Midday, pause for lunch; included choices are tonkatsu or tempura. Return to the Kyoto Station for drop-off at the end of the day.
