Kyoto - Explore The City
Check out from the hotel to the city of Kyoto. Your luggage will be sent to the Kyoto hotel, with same-day delivery. Transfer to Kyoto by local trains with English Speaking Guide, and explore the city starting from the Nishiki Market that is a narrow, five-block long shopping street lined by more than one hundred shops and restaurants. Known as "Kyoto's Kitchen", this lively retail market specializes in all things food-related, like fresh seafood, produce, knives and cookware, and is a great place to find seasonal foods and Kyoto specialties, such as Japanese sweets, pickles, dried seafood, and sushi. Then we visit the Yasaka Shrine, also known as Gion Shrine, which is one of the most famous shrines in Kyoto. Founded over 1350 years ago, the shrine is located between the popular Gion District and Higashiyama District and is often visited by tourists walking between the two districts. The last visit is to Kiyomizu Temple that is one of the most celebrated temples of Japan. It was founded in 780 on the site of the Otowa Waterfall in the wooded hills east of Kyoto and derives its name from the fall's pure waters. The temple was originally associated with the Hosso sect, one of the oldest schools within Japanese Buddhism, but formed its own Kita Hosso sect in 1965. In 1994, the temple was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites. Strolling around Sannenzaka-Ninenzaka & Gion District while we are heading to our hotel late afternoon.
