What you'll do

Arashiyama is one of the most famous sightseeing districts in Kyoto. It is located on the outskirts of Kyoto, and looks like a rural town with greenish mountains. Ancient aristocrats loved this place for its sublime nature, but during the day, it gets very crowded with tourists. That's why I would like to show you Arashiyama in the morning, on a 90-minute excursion. That is a good time for feeling the beauty of the natural environment in this area, and I will show you the highlights. At the end, I will give you a map with my recommendations, so you can explore more, and find beautiful spots by yourself right—there are a lot of spots worth visiting. Please feel free to ask me anything, and I will help you enjoy Arasiyama like a local friend.
Other things to note
We will be walking for more than 4 KM, approximately 2.5 Miles and there are some steps. So we recommend comfortable walking shoes).

  • Identity verified
Hello, I live and work in Kyoto as a local travel agent. I would like to show you Kyoto, the most spectacular and historic city in Japan. I studied English in Toronto, then traveled around North and South America as a backpacker. While I was traveling, I met a lot of nice people, and they helped me so much. After coming back to Japan, I decided to work in a travel agency, in order to help foreign tourists as a repayment for their kindness. I look forward to seeing you in Arashiyama.
