Nanzenji, one of Japan's most prestigious temple known for its beautiful Japanese garden, cherry blossom, and the aqueduct built in 1888 is an amazing and photogenic sight to see. During this season, the Keage Incline surrounded with large beautiful Sakura trees in full blossom looks like a one scene in a movie for its magnificent beauty and surreal surroundings. See, feel, and fully enjoy the spring season with Explorer Tours.

The Sakura tour is available between March 20th to April 20th 2019.

Nishiki Market

Nishiki market is a 390m long shopping arcade where you can taste Kyoto's unique food selection. Experience the food culture of the locals and be a part of Kyoto's kitchen.

Gionshirakawa

This famous area in Kyoto where the townscape dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868) is a marvel. This area along Shirakawa river has kept its appearance of old Japan. Tatsumi Daimyojin found in the center of Gionshirakawa is a famous guardian shrine for Geisha and Maiko to improve their artistry of performance.

Hanami Koji

This street that goes through the center of Gion is a historical street where you can find tea houses, restaurants, and Okiya(Geisha and Maiko Housing). In early evenings, you might be able to see a Geisha or Maiko walking from building to building to get to their appointment for the evening.

Nanzen-ji

Nanzenji became a Zen buddhist temple in 1291. Located in a land of 14.9 hectares, there are several gardens and historical structures such as the 3 great gates, can be found in the vast land. An aqueduct that carries water from lake Biwa built in 1890 can also be found here. See the contrast of modernity and visit this top rated temple.

Keage Incline

The Keage Incline rail road track was built as part of the aqueduct that carries out water from lake Biwa as the main water supply of Kyoto. The tracks used to carry out ships to transfer from one area to another and was in-use until about 70 years ago. The Sakura magnificently arches over the tracks creating a beautiful Sakura tunnel over this world's longest incline.
