We booked the Autumn Colors Bike tour of Kyoto for 11/27. Lucky for us, we were the only people on the tour - so we had our excellent guide Eric all to ourselves! Kyoto is an easy city to bike, it's flat and drivers give...More

Paul Schneider was a great guide, not only having lots of knowledge about Gion, maikos and geikos (Kyoto geishas) but also about Japanese culture and politics. And the visit to the izakaya was fantastic with Paul's help with the menu and recommendations for drinks. We...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
