Kyoto is a perfect destination for a Japan holiday. Rich in culture and history, the old capital of Kyoto is a must see for any traveller searching for an authentic Japanese stay. Spared from the bombings of World War 2 much of the city remains intact and many historic buildings from the Edo period can still be admired, where other cities such as Tokyo were not so fortunate. Visit Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, stop and admire the sugidama (cedar balls), hanging outside wooden houses in the Gion district which symbolise a new batch of sake for sale. Experience traditional Kaiseki dining and follow the Shirakawa River in the hopes of spotting a Giesha.
Travelling long haul, you'll want to make it count, so for all our guests we've organised the first night of your trip to be in Tokyo. What's great though is for your return you can choose between an additional night or two in Tokyo or Kyoto.
We can also introduce you to Tokyo, an intense and amazing introduction to modern day Japan.
