This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, 68 Fukakusa Yabunouchicho, Fushimi, Kyoto 612-0882 Kyoto Prefecture

The Fushimi Inari Shrine is the head shrine for some 30,000 Inari shrines all across Japan. It is especially famous for its seemingly endless 1,000 vermilion shrine torii (gates). Fushimi Inari was dedicated to the gods of agriculture, the deities were enrolled to ensure prosperity in business, a bountiful harvest and traffic safety.

Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes

Stop At: Gionmachi, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto 605-0001 Kyoto Prefecture

Gion is Kyoto's most famous geisha district, it's filled with shops, restaurants, and ochaya (teahouses), where geiko and maiko entertain.

'Geiko' is a woman trained in the art of music, singing and dancing to entertain the guests (also known as Geisha in Tokyo). Maiko is a Geiko apprentice, a younger woman who is training in the arts. With this tour you'll be able to see Maiko performance and witness a Japanese Traditional Tea Ceremony whereas the Maiko will serve you the tea herself! You will also get the opportunity to take a commemorative photo with Maiko or Geiko.

Lunch is all-you-can-eat Chanko-nabe, a delicious hot-pot eaten by Sumo wrestlers in large quantities to gain power. The soup is made with fish or chicken broth and ingredients such as meatballs, vegetables, Tofu, Mochi and udon are simmered in the soup.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Arashiyama, Togetsukyo, Saga, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto 616-8383 Kyoto Prefecture

Arashiyama district located in the Western part of Kyoto. This area becomes most attractive around early April and late November when the cherry blossoms bloom and fall color seasons usually peak. During the summer months, traditional cormorant fishing is practiced on the Hozu River for tourists to watch. One highly recommended spot is the Sagano Bamboo Forest. It is a pleasantly cool 100m long walkway that begins from the side of the world heritage Tenryuji Temple. The tour is ended at Arashiyama.

Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes
