Kyoto Early Morning Walking & Taxi Tour

Discover Kyoto at it's most magical hour as the sun rises over Japan's historic treasure of a city. Take a magical walk through the thousands of red gates at Fushimi Inari shrine and visit a nearly empty temple, then on to Arashiyama

This experience is perfect for those who naturally rise in the early morning, or for those who just want to have a unique experience and don't mind getting up early for it. Can also be an amazing way to take advantage of your jet lag!

We start at the world famous Fushimi Inari Shrine and what a special time to see this amazing place. There are thousands of red gates which line the path up the hillside. With the low early light casting long shadows here we can get some truly fantastic photos before all the crowds arrive.

After that we make our way to Kiyomizu Temple where we can see the amazing World Heritage temple and #1 temple in Japan before the busses start to unload. This is a magical time to see the amazing temple complex and get a view of the city coming to life below us and is a rare temple in that it opens so early for our enjoyment.

We then make the journey across town to Arashiyama where we get to see the beautiful bamboo grove which if we are lucky will still be relatively quiet and great for getting some fantastic photos to cherish for a lifetime.

Before leaving Arashiyama, if we have time, we make a visit to one of the most beautiful zen temples in Kyoto, Tenryuji Temple a world heritage site with a radiant garden. This is truly a special place to draw a close to the tour.

Along the way we give you insights about Buddhism, Japanese garden design, history and more. We are also happy to help you with any questions you have about Kyoto or Japan and can even help you plan your days ahead.
