Overview

Spend a day exploring historic neighborhoods, visiting temples, and shopping on a full-day tour from Osaka to Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. You’ll see the Arashiyama district, tour the the Kinkaku-ji and Nara Todaiji Temples, and take in the stores at Kobe MOSAIC. This full-day tour includes entrance fees, as well as pickup and drop-off at Umeda or Namba, a buffet or torisuki lunch, and an all-you-can-eat shabu shabu dinner.
  • Full-day trip from Osaka to Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe
  • Visit a historic Kyoto district
  • See UNESCO-listed temples
  • Shop and eat at Kobe MOSAIC
  • Option to add lunch and/or dinner
  • Pickup and drop-off at central locations in Kyoto
  • Entrance fees included
Meet a driver at a central location in Umeda or Namba, then board a bus for the trip to Kyoto, where your first stop of the day is a tour of the Arashiyama district. In early April, Arashiyama lights up with cherry blossoms, and during summer months, traditional cormorant fishing is practiced in Arashiyama’s Hozu River.

If you’re visiting in the fall, autumn leaves are a highlight, and you can visit the Tenryuji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site near the Sagano Bamboo Forest. You can visit a local restaurant for lunch, before continuing to the Kinkakuji Temple, a pagoda built to house sacred Buddha relics.

Spend the afternoon touring Nara Park and the Todaiji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once one of the Seven Great Temples. See the largest Buddha statue in Japan, and spot some of the wild deer that live within the park.

Pause for dinner and shopping at the Kobe MOSAIC, a shopping mall in the city’s port, with roughly 80 shops and restaurants—and a Ferris wheel that’s perfect for nighttime views of the city. You’ll dine on beef, pork, or chicken shabu-shabu, a kind of traditional hotpot, alongside vegetables, soft drinks, and ice cream.

After dinner, begin the return trip to Osaka, where this tour concludes with drop-off by the Namba “OCAT,” or the Hearton Hotel Nishi in Umeda.

Tour comes with a Chinese and English speaking guide.The Chinese guide was clear and helpful however the English guide ( Lady in pony tail mid age) was convoluted with her explanation and often included non essential info instead of key info such as time and place to meet. As a result, the group lost a few tourists during the day. This is very bad management and is a big taboo for tour guides. I feel for the tourists who cannot understand English as they often am not sure where they are and wht time to gather.Time management was also bad. When a time is fixed to get back to the bus, the guides also dilly dally back to bus 5 min past time. Together with the delay here and there by rest of the pax, overall day trip was delayed by an hour. Kyoto sights did not include the famous Fushimi Inari Shrine which just feels altogether a touch and good with non proper curation kind of trip. I actually feel I deserve a refund for half the trip.

The full day tour was packed with things to see. 13 hours was not enough time due to traffic and drive times between sites. Golden Pavilion was a bit rushed. If you have only one day in Osaka, then this tour is the one to take.

The tour was fantastic. the day was very sunny and we had the opportunity to visit many places but with tranquility. The trip on the bus was quiet and safe. we were guided by Jewel who is an excellent guide. Much of this great experience is thanks to her, who was always willing to take pictures of everyone and explain us about each place where we were. 100 recommendable!!

Love this experience we had. It was picture perfect! Everything was so organized and for the amount we paid, it was so worth it! Our picture was like a postcard!

Tour guide was okay, could have been better. Hurried at all places. They had clubbed people with different tour options into one bus which was kinda annoying at times. But Kobe dinner was good. Places were amazing too.

The sights in Kyoto and Nara were nice, but Kobe's trip was a disappointment. The tour, from pickup to drop off can be much more organized.

If you are short of time, this tour is absolutely worth to use 1 days to visit 3 cities, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe. I did not join the lunch in order to gain more time for sightseeing in Kyoto. The dinner is all you can eat hotpot in Kobe and it is great.

The trip was excellent! Kudos to Miss Suzuki and Mr. Ching, they were really good at it and very informative. The kids enjoyed specially at Nara park and the deers. One day is not enough to enjoy and fully explore all wonderful sites. Definitely we will be coming back.
