NARA - NARA PARK - TODAI-JI - KASUGA TAISHA - YOSHIKIEN GARDEN
We’re going to a new city today. Nara is an ancient city, and was once the capital of Japan before Kyoto. The shrines, temples here are a bit older, and you can still feel the strong Buddhist vibe around. Our main exploring will be around the Nara Park. One of the most unique things here are the deers. They will ask for foods from the tourist, and they will bow to you to get it. Only in Nara. Then we will visit some of the temples, shrines and castle around, such as, Todai-ji, Kasuga Taisha, Yoshikien GardeN, and many more. We’ll be having dinner in Nara and then going back to Osaka for the night.
KYOTO - FUSHIMI INARI - GION - HIGASHIYAMA
New day, new city. Kyoto is going to be our exploring area. It is our favourite city in Japan. There is just something about this city. It is beautiful in almost every corner. Even just strolling around the neighbourhood is somewhat inspiring. The attractions here are quite similar with Nara, in terms of the temples, shrines and castle. But they are quite different. We are going to visit Fushimi Inari Taisha, a shrines with millions of red gates. One of the most photogenic places in Kyoto. We will be walking all the way up to the top here, so we can see all the different scenes around. Then later today, we’re going to Gion and Higashiyama areas. It is known for its Geisha and Maiko. It is an old neighbourhood, with some castles and pagodas around. We’ll have dinner in Kyoto and going back to Osaka for the night.
KYOTO - ARASHIYAMA - FREE TIME
Going back to Kyoto this morning. We’ll take it slow again today. The first stop will be Arashihyama Bamboo Forest. Another photogenic area in Kyoto. It is located in one of the fancy neighbourhood in Kyoto. After the bamboo forest, we can explore one of the mansions there. Then after lunch, it’s gonna be a free time in Kyoto. You can choose to explore whatever you want here. Since there are just so much to see here, you are free to explore. We’ll guide you on how to get around. We’ll meet up again for dinner and going back to Osaka at night.
