What you'll do

What kind of memories will you have of Kyoto? You will enjoy it more, and discover new locations, by cycling. You'll experience amazing cycling on the west side of Kyoto. You'll get to visit a shrine and temple, and sample traditional food by cycling. We'll pay a visit to the Kitano Tenmangu shrine, and learn about its history and how to make a prayer. And if you want to play fortune, we'll draw your fortune. Then we'll go to Kei-Shun-In, a temple that is known to those in the know. You will see and feel a real Japanese temple and garden, and have Japanese tea. We'll heal our daily fatigue there. My friend is a Buddhist monk at this temple, and if he is there on the day of your visit, you can experience zen meditation. For dinner we will go to my family's restaurant. You will enjoy dinner at a real local restaurant with a traditional set meal with sake or beer. I promise you will have a feeling for the real Kyoto by the time you're finished this cycling experience.
Other things to note
The cycling route depends on the weather. If it's raining that day, we'll shorten the cycling time and prepare dinner better than normal.

Yuki is a very personable and thoughtful young man who learned English on his own. His vocabulary is extensive, and he’s good at explaining things. He gave me a short tutorial on tea ceremony, and explained the meaning of the rock garden at Riyoan. I enjoyed my bike tour with Yuki thoroughly.

Yuki was a great host. Informative, friendly and had plenty of knowledge at each stop. Biking around the area wasn't too difficult and Yuki even helped with traffic control. He answered all our questions and we wanted for nothing all day. He really looked out for us. Dinner was amazing so many traditional dishes catered for all our dietary needs and it was great to meet his family. Highly recommended!!
