The bus tour will show you the night scenery of UNESCO World Heritage sites including To-ji Temple, Nishi-Honganji Temple and Nijo Catsle, as well as Heian Jingu Shrine and Yasaka Shrine. The bus also visit Shijo Kawaramachi and the Gion district, at the heart of this ancient city. A very surprising special lighting up event at Heian Jingu Shrine and Chion-in Temple.

Night scenery of Kyoto from this bus was very splendid. Chion-in Sanmon gate and Heian-jingu Shrine were in particular fantastic and splendid. As the temples of Kyoto close early in the evening, I think that this night bus tour is valuable for the international travelers.

This bus is the best for looking around Kyoto after closing temples and shrines. The pagoda of Toji temple and Heian Jingu Shrine is very good. Chion-in temple San-mon in the night is extremely beautiful.
