Wake up fresh to meet your guide at the Kyoto prefecture at 8:35 AM and begin your refreshing walking tour. Meander through the Arashiyama district, home to temples, shrines and the famous Bamboo Grove. Your first stop shall be at the Jojakkoji Temple. This temple is surrounded by foliage and colors and serves as a quiet place away from the bustling crowds.
Spend half an hour here before heading to the Tenryuji Temple, one of the most important temples at the Arashiyama district. This Zen temple was ranked number one out of the city's five Zen temples. The gardens of the Tenryuji temple have survived the generations with a beautiful pond and blooming landscapes. Enjoy some quality time of self-reflection and meditation before moving on towards the Togetsukyo Bridge.
155 meters long, this bridge spans across the Katsura River and offers a vantage point for the scenic views of the Western Hills. During spring and fall, the eye can see breathtaking views of blushing pinks or fiery red draping the mountain.
At the end of the tour, head back to the original departure point after taking in your fill of nature and its unmatchable beauty.
