Optional Tours Information
Sagano Arashiyama Tour – half day tour
In the South West corner of Kyoto, nestled in amongst the mountains that surround this ancient city, lies the Sagano- Arashiyama area. This area has been a favourite destination of royalty and aristocrats for more than a thousand years. Visit Sagano and experience for yourself some of the beauty and tranquility that have drawn people to the area for centuries. Walk in the footsteps of the aristocrats who came to stroll amongst the bamboo woods to enjoy the scenery or to go boating. The landscape today is still reminiscent of that period. Stroll past small farm houses, browse through a pottery and bamboo craft shop and soak up the atmosphere of the Kyoto countryside.
Spend a unique evening experiencing a traditional Japanese Kaiseki-style dinner in a private room with the accompaniment of a Geisha, followed by a traditional dance performance and an opportunity to chat and interact with the Geisha for the evening.
