Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine

Start at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kyoto’s most visited shrine. A picture-perfect, instagrammable place located at the end of a flamed colored walkway. Gates are made from thousands of traditional tori gates making this place the most iconic treasure. If you happened to watch the popular movie “Memoirs of a Geisha” in 2005, this is their infamous shooting place.

Details: This Shrine is always open and FREE!
Address: 68 Fukakusa Yabunouchicho, Fushimi-ku,Kyoto

Take the train to Fushimi Inari Station on the Keihan Main Line (if coming from Higashiyama, 10 minutes from Gion-Shijo) or JR Inari Station on the JR Nara Line (if coming from Kyoto Station, 5 minutes).

Kinkaku-ji Temple

Visit the most photographed sights in Kyoto, the Golden Temple or Kinkaku-ji Temple. Built in 1397, this shimmering golden pavilion was surrounded by a placid lake and islands of trees. It was once the retirement villa of a shogun and it became a zen temple after his death in 1408.

Located in Northwest of Kyoto, so better plan your trip going here.

Bamboo Grove

Located between the temple of Tenryuji and Okouchi Sanso garden lies an iconic landmark of the Arashiyama area. Another picture-perfect spot in Kyoto that would leave you the magical vibe from Japanese movies.

You should be an early bird to capture the Bamboo Forest without crowds.

Wazuka Tea Plantation

For tea lovers, you should not miss visiting Tea Plantation as Kyoto is Japan’s best Matcha and green tea producer. The most popular tea plantation is located in the small town called Wazuka where nearly half of the tea is produced here.

Wazuka Tea plantation is one of the most popular day-trip destinations. You can enjoy various activities here such as guided tours, tea picking, plantation experience, tea ceremony lessons, and many more.

Geisha watching/experience and Samurai Experience

Dress up as Geisha/Maiko (Japanese traditional dancers) or as Sumarai/Ninja costume to complete your Kyoto experience. You will feel like you have been into Japanese popular movies.

Kyoto is the best place to learn “Bushido” (the way of the warrior) and feel Zen.

Travel Tips

To avoid the crowds in Kyoto, stay as long as possible. Visiting Kyoto deserves more than a day of visit. Ideally, a longer stay will give you more to explore the popular places at off-peak times.
