Sightseeing day tour at Arashiyama and Nara Park

Just three hours spent in ancient Kyoto - and more in Nara Park - are enough for you to get a healthy dose of nature.

This well-paced tour is perfect for those who’re looking to see the natural beauty of Kyoto. After meeting at the designated pick-up point, you will head to Arashiyama, located in the western district of the ancient capital. Here, stroll around the area and soak in the scenic sights and water vistas dotting the area (look out for the iconic Togetsukyo Bridge and monkey park here if there’s time). If you have added on the kimono rental experience, you will be brought to the store to get changed before you start exploring Arashiyama!

Next, indulge in a hearty lunch buffet/chicken teriyaki meal (if you opt for plan A/B) before taking a ride on Kyoto’s oldest (and only) sightseeing tram, the Randen, to get to Nara Park. The perfectly scenic tram ride will see you through views of iconic Kyoto temple landmarks like Ryoanji, Kinkakuji and Ninnaji, too. Lastly, Nara Park is where you’ll get to interact with the lovely sika deers sauntering around the picturesque grounds.
