Stop At: Arashiyama

The Arashiyama district is located in the Western part of Kyoto. Upon arrival you will have a full three hours to tour Arashiyama.

During the summer months, traditional cormorant fishing is practiced on the Hozu River for tourists to watch. One highly recommended spot is the Sagano Bamboo Forest.

Later, you will have lunch (if selected) at the designated restaurant escorted by the tour conductor.
