Kyoto was the ancient capital of Japan for over 1,000 years and as such has so much history and culture that it would be impossible to cover all within one day.

Departing your Hotel you will visit the glittering Kinkaku-ji Temple ( Golden Pavilion) – covered with gold leaf, surrounded by green gardens and set on a lovely, tranquil pond. Following this it is possible to contemplate the iconic Zen rock garden at Ryoan-ji, the perfect spot for a meditative walk.
