Walk around the paths of Kyoto which everyone recommends to visit on this tour! Is that all? No! There is much more, wide, clean stone pavements like a Japanese movie, local shops located along a path unknown to tourists and an artist path which is becoming highly popular today, “Geisha” and “Maiko” also walk these paths, so keep an eye out for them! You will also visit a temple with more than 1,000 years, and later stop by a famous café! A first-time trip to Kyoto? Why not discover the hidden spots of Kyoto, by strolling around the Kyoto-way!
