3-Day Kyoto and Nara Rail Tour by Bullet Train from Tokyo

136 reviews
Immerse yourself in the historical highlights and cultural delights of Kyoto and Nara on a 2- or 3-day guided tour from Tokyo. Leave Tokyo on a super-speed bullet train and begin your excursion in Nara, a city replete with sacred shrines and holy temples. Luxuriate in comfortable accommodation then spend the following day discovering the legendary landmarks of Kyoto with your accomplished guide. Opt for the 3-day option to experience a day of independent exploration in Kyoto and enjoy round-trip transportation from your hotel on both tours.
