Kinkaku-ji

Kyoto is not very far from Nagoya. If you take Shinkansen Nozomi Superexpress, it takes only 36 minutes from Nagoya Station to Kyoto Station. Local people in Nagoya also make a day trip to Kyoto. So, if you are in Nagoya, and still want to visit Kyoto, it's quite easy!

However, public transportaion is very complicated in Kyoto. To go around major touristic places, please consider to take a guide. So that you can make a Kyoto trip very efficiently.

Typical Itineraries

This tour includes the most popular places to visit in Kyoto such as Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple, and Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavillion). This is a typical itinerary for a day tour to Kyoto, though the itinerary is flexible. Consult with our guide if you like to add / omit some places.

These three destinations are located distance away from each other; it is complicated to move by public transportation even for Japanese. So we offer a private car (Jumbo Taxi) with our government - licensed English-speaking guide to make your trip comfortable and fun.
