On this tour, we will be visiting the hard to access mountain area of Kyoto, Japan and spend a day visiting the historical sights of the area.

Cross over several mountains in Kyoto and we will arrive on a Semi Private Bus Tour to the preserved village of Kayabuki no Sato where you will find thatched roofs of old houses still standing today. Surround yourself in this quiet and charming village where you can see and feel the lifestyle of the olden age. Then continue the tour to the bright and shining Golden Pavilion, one of Kyoto's most iconic structure, and to the natural beauty or Arashiyama's Bamboo Forest. Join us and we will take you on a journey like no other with Explorer Tours.

Kayabuki no Sato

Kayabuki no Sato is a rural village located in the mountainous area of Kyoto Prefecture. Here you will find the original view of the old village preserved from olden times.
In this village, there are about 40 thatch roof houses that were build during the Edo period (1603-1868). Today, there are still people living in some of these thatch roof houses.
The oldest thatch roof house was build in 1796.
This quiet mountain village with several thatch roof houses shows us the landscape of ancient Japan.

Golden Pavilion

Founded in 1397, it is said that the structure and garden was designed as paradise in this world. Registered as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, it is possibly the most famous building in Kyoto.

Togetsukyo Bridge

Originally built over Katsura river around year 840, the name Togetsukyo came from when Emperor Kameyama saw the moon cross the bridge. The current bridge was built in 1934, and is a symbol of Arashiyama.

Bamboo Forest

This area, once loved by royalty, is a path way where the bamboos grow up to 400m tall. A 1000 years later, the bamboo forest is still adored by many.
