These are some original videos from our guides. Enjoy some of the most wonderful places in Kyoto from the comfort of your home! Let’s start with one of the most popular views of Japan, the Golden Pavillion, and view our way through Japan’s ancient capital.
The name ‘Rokuon-ji’ means ‘Temple of the deer garden’ probably doesn’t sound familiar to you. It is much better known by its informal name ‘Kinkaku-ji‘ or ‘Temple of the Golden Pavilion’. This shiny, beautiful structure is a Buddhist temple of the Zen type that was founded in 1397. It was the resting villa of the third shogun, Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, who reigned during the Muromachi Period.
In Kyoto, it is very common to see people dressed in the traditional clothes of Japan, kimono. There is even a rather peculiar place that honors the designs of this beautiful garment. The place is known as The Kimono Forest. This is a must-see promenade for people heading to the bamboo forest, located in the Arashiyama area.
Visiting Kyoto and not visiting the Gion district is like not having gone to the original capital. Gion is an unforgettable walk that is recognized worldwide for its unique beauty and tradition. This is the place where, if you are lucky, you can spot geisha on their way to work.
The Heian Jingu shrine was established in 1895 to commemorate the 1,100-year anniversary of the return of the capital to Heian, which is today’s Kyoto.
The bamboo forest is one of the most popular tourist sites in Kyoto, and it is located in Arashiyama. You can take very beautiful pictures here!
Kiyomizudera is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Kyoto because of the many cultural treasures and beautiful views. It is an official National Treasure of Japan and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
