Description

The former imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto is full of cultural treasures to discover. Spend a day being chauffeured to the city's most remarkable highlights in a private taxi, getting the chance to see places like the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kinkaku-ji, Sanjusangendo, and Kiyomizu-dera.

Following pickup from your hotel, get chauffeured first to the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Famous for its thousands of vermillion torii gates, the shrine is a complex of buildings and trails that lead in the forests of sacred Mount Inari. Spend some time learning about the shrine, which is dedicated to the Shinto god of rice, before moving on to Kinkaku-ji. Also known as the Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji is a 15th-century Zen temple aptly named for its gold leaf-covered top floors. Walk through its immaculately maintained gardens and admire the beautiful nature before continuing on.

After a break for lunch, visit the Sanjusangendo temple, which was built in 1164 AD by the emperor of Japan. The temple is known for its 1,001 statues of the 1,000-armed Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy, all of which you can see on display in the temple hall. Your final stop of the day is at Kiyomizu-dera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most celebrated Buddhist temples in Japan. The temple gets its name, which translates to “pure water temple,” from the pristine waters of the Otowa Waterfall, which you can drink as you walk through the beautiful complex.
