Overview
What to Expect
We will then walk from Yasaka Shrine to Kiyomizu Temple. The main building is under construction but it is still beautiful and impressive from the outside. You will learn how this huge building stood for centuries without having even one piece of nail. You will also get to know the importance of Kiyomizu temple in Japanese history and culture.

Kiyomizu temple has a garden, walking paths, wish stones and most importantly mystical water fountain that is believed to have miraculous healing powers. By the way, the name Kiyo mizu refers to this special water stream. The tour takes 60~80 minutes and we will finish the tour around 17:20.

We are Kyoto Samurai & Ninja museum, the best rated museum in Kyoto. All of our guides are professionals who have been trained in guiding and how to make guests feel at ease by always being patient and smiling constantly. All of our guides have near native English speaking skills and we also provide handouts in 20 different languages. By participating in this tour you will have a local “friend” showing you around rather than being dragged to routine places by a stranger.

We know that travelers neither want a history lecture nor a fast facts trivia. They just want to feel like a local and learn how the area relates Japanese culture and history. Our guests also often ask us about the souvenir shops, restrooms, hidden gems, transportation to their next stop and local favorite restaurants. So we prepared the perfect package tour with the best price that will make your trip to Japan extra rewarding.
