What you'll do

Welcome to Kyoto! It's a old capital city of Japan. And, there are many shrines and temples. But they are just a part of Kyoto. Actually, we have a lots of beautiful nature, unique culture and delicious food, etc. So, now I would like to invite you to special hiking tour around backcountry side of Kyoto, which away from crowded tourists. It will depart from in front of Saiin station of Hankyu Railways (just by Nishioji Shijo traffic junction) in the morning. Then, we go to Takao area by bus. From Takao, we walk down to Kiyotaki village. It's about 1 hour walk (3 km) in beautiful valley. As we reach Kiyotaki, let's spend some time by the river. In summer season, we can bathe in the water, and in fall season we can enjoy colored leaves. After Kiyotaki village, we'll go to Arashiyama area by bus. Around Arashiyama, let's have a lunch together. And then, hang around here or there for somewhile. We'll visit Bamboo forest moon crossing bridge, etc. Through this tour, you can enjoy the different landscape and atmosphere in Kyoto. It must become highlight of your holidays!!
