Kyoto Travel Guide

The city of Kyoto is the center for culture and the arts, different from Tokyo and Osaka. It is Japan's third largest city after Tokyo and Osaka. It is a city of geishas, torii gates, and Zen gardens, including old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. Kyoto gives you a traditional sense of how the old Japan was, compared to modern Tokyo and Osaka. There is a lot to see, with popular attractions like the Golden Pavilion, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Nijo Castle, etc. The fact that there is so much to see in Kyoto, a guided tour may be the best option if you would like to see everything and at convenience. Our join in group tours includes Kyoto on the itinerary, while some have shorter or longer stays in Kyoto since you will also visit Osaka and Tokyo. If you are interested in joining a tour, you can visit our join in tours page for more information. If you have any questions or concerns, our travel guide also includes travel tips and more information.
