What You Can Expect

Arashiyama Rickshaw Tour and Japanese Foot Spa Combo in Kyoto

Japanese Foot Massage

Begin your rickshaw and foot treatment by meeting your guide at Kyoto’s Togetsukyō Bridge. Depending on the length of the excursion you’ve pre-selected, you’ll either embark on a 30- or 60-minute sightseeing ride.

Sit back, relax, and let your guide do the work, listening to their informative commentary as you wheel through Kyoto. Those who participate in the 30-minute trip will travel through an idyllic bamboo forest heading to Nonomiya Shrine. It’s the perfect opportunity to experience a glimpse of Kyoto’s Edo-era architecture, rural farm fields, and typical thatched-roof homes. Those who select a 60-minute rickshaw trip will enjoy the itinerary above, plus an added visit to your choice of temple or garden. Among the picks are Nison-in, Jojakkoji, Hokyo-in, Seiryoji, or Hogon-in.

Following your rickshaw ride, proceed to the foot spa studio, situated on a quiet side street in Kyoto’s Arashiyama area. Leave your shoes at the entrance and put on a comfortable pair of capri pants as you begin to relax for your session. You’ll start by soaking your feet in pleasantly warm water, helping to begin the relaxation process. Choose between two different soaking methods, including the Zen option, which features the invigorating addition of tea leaves from Japan’s Uji region, or the Miyabi option, which utilizes the wonderful scents of seasonal flowers.

While your feet soak, enjoy an included drink and feel your tense muscles loosen as the staffs adds some hot mineral water to your soaking bucket. After this step, a cream will be applied to your feet, followed by a massage focusing on any stiff areas and pressure points. Depending on the length of the foot spa experience you select, your soak and massage will last either 30 or 50 minutes. You’ll end your trip here.

It was a wonderful experience even in the rain. My rickshaw driver Chikokoma was very nice and did a good job showing me the different temples and sites around Bamboo Forest as well as Bamboo Forest itself. I would definitely recommend this tour. The foot soak and massage afterward were wonderful and I was glad to have done this.

This was one of the loveliest experiences in Japan! Everything from the warm welcome signs with our names! to the rickshaw tour were second to none. The rickshaw driver who was assigned to us spoke Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and English which was perfect for my mother, who is from Shanghai and me, who was born in the US.

Shun was so considerate, enthusiastic and passionate about the sights he showed us. He patiently described the history of all the major heritage areas as well as many local customs. I must say, my mother was quite taken by him.... and kept remarking how charming he was!

Thank you for such a lovely time! I would recommend this to everyone!
