NEW ACTIVITY IN KYOTO CITY
Shrine, Sake, Food and History,
Explore Fushimi District
This tour includes the famous "Fushimi Inari" shrine and its thousand gates, but it is just a warm-up for the real experience.
Enjoy your traditional "Taiyaki", a Fish shaped hot waffle filled up with red bean paste or custard cream, while learning about the area and what makes it so special. Visit the old Sake distillery of Gekkeikan and explore the Sake culture with the very first distillery to export Japanese alcohol overseas. Walk by the Canal of Fushimi, an amazing spot to enjoy the outdoors, the cherry blossom, and the beauty of a very traditional district of Kyoto. Listen to Your Guide telling you the story of one of the most significant battles in Japanese history, that led to the beginning of the Meiji restoration. Visit Teradaya Inn, and discover the story of Sakamoto Ryoma, one of the most important and respected historical people in Japanese history, and how he nearly got assassinated in his room by the Shinsengumi, and could barely escape. Explore the "Ryoma" Shopping Street, the equivalence of the "Nishiki Market", but which did not lose its authenticity and tradition, to make it a much more memorable Food, Drink, and Shopping experience in Kyoto. Before finishing the tour, we will go for one last stop and enjoy traditional Japanese sweets, after the Sake distillery, relax and talk about what has been done during the tour. This will be the perfect time to get a coffee, and we take you back to Kyoto Station.
