It was amazing! One of the most beautiful places in Japan. The ride was comfortable with a warm blanket and a heater on the seat.

Dear TravelmMmtravel, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us in Kyoto Arashiyama the other day. We are super happy to hear that with our rickshaw you got to see one of the most beautiful places in Japan. Though this time of year can already get quite chilly, the seat heaters and warm blankets are meant to keep you warm and comfortable throughout the ride. Come and visit us again in a different season! In summer it is vividly green while in spring the white/pink cherry blossoms softly decorate the mountain side. Best Regards, Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw
