We booked a rickshaw ride as a fun way to see some of the beautiful countryside of Kyoto, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Aki our tour guide was absolutely brilliant- and a dab hand with an iPhone camera! Some great photos and memories of our trip!

I was actually looking for the way to Arashiyama's bamboo grove ended up walking the wrong way. So I decided to take the rickshaw ride. My driver for the day was Takatomo San, communicating with him in english is easy. Total time for the whole trip was 45mins, and ended at any point that I wanted. During the ride, Takatomo... More

My husband was very skeptical about a rickshaw ride. I think he felt guilty about the mode of transport. But we had gotten lost on our first trip to the Bamboo Forest and hiring a rickshaw turned out to be a great way to visit it. Our driver Akihisa was super friendly and pleasant. Not only did he make the... More

My daughter and friend and I took 2 rickshaws from the river to the Bamboo Grove. The 2 "drivers"Yuta O and Kei were so funny and entertaining, but also informative, giving us some history along the way. and taking our photos. Well worth the money and it saved us a lot of walking!

It was amazing to look around with the rickshaw drivers, Kei and Kiyo. They were very kind, gentle and knowledgeable. They took us to the wonderful temple which has a secret garden inside. I think it's hard to find such a nice garden without them. This was the first time to ride on the rickshaw for my friends. They said,... More

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
