Sightseeing Time! First up is the “Kiyomizu-dera”  Temple, a Symbol of Kyoto.

After checking in, take a 15-minute bus ride from the hotel to reach this must-visit attraction. Kodaiji is another gem, boasting stunning Momoyama-era architecture, cobblestone gardens, and peaceful bamboo groves—a true glimpse into old Japan. Don’t miss the chance to stroll through the well-preserved historic areas of Ninen-zaka and Sannen-zaka, perfect for snapping some local pics. And of course, there are plenty of souvenir shops and eateries to indulge in the flavors of Kyoto!

Take a Break Sipping on Matcha at the Entoku-in Temple

After Kiyomizu-dera, take a breather at Entoku-in Temple nearby. Sip on some delicious matcha while soaking in the beautifully maintained gardens and the temple’s incredible 400-year-old history.

Fushimi Inari Taisha and the thousand torii gates.

Next up, the famous Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, known for its “Thousand Torii Gates.” It’s the main shrine among thousands in Japan, and you can reach it with a 30-minute bus ride from Kiyomizu-dera. The vibrant red gates are a sight to behold!

Traditional Performing Arts “Noh & Kyogen”

In the afternoon, we recommend experiencing traditional Japanese performing arts, Noh and Kyogen. Noh showcases elegant dances and captivating music, while Kyogen is a dialogue-filled performance with lots of humor. You’ll find numerous Noh theaters in Kyoto, so check the schedules for a mesmerizing show!
