This is the ideal pick for first-time visitors to Kyoto. Save hours planning an itinerary and figuring out the local public transport system, and go on a stress-free coach tour instead. Travel between dispersed sites in an air-conditioned coach with Wi-Fi connectivity. The tour goes to a variety of shrines, temples, and top sights, including Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, Arashiyama bamboo groves, and Kinkakuji Temple.
