A melting pot of urban and cultural, Kyoto offers you the fascinating balance of old and new on this walking tour. Your guide shall meet you at the Kyoto Central Post Office before you go on to visit the first stop - Tofukuji Temple. This is one of the five great Zen temples of Kyoto and known for its beautiful autumn colors and 13th-century architecture. Stroll through the gardens of this monastery and take your time to soak in the beauty.
The next spot, Fushimi Inari Shrine, is nestled in a lush mountain and was made famous in the movie version of Memoirs of a Geisha for its red gates (torii). The place also has various smaller shrines and statues that you can admire while there.
Finally, head to the Gion district - a place filled with the traditional tea houses and homes of the geisha. You may even chance to see the geisha with their intricate and ornate kimonos. Ask your guide about their traditional culture for any doubts or curious questions you may have.
