About
Enjoy the highlight of Arashiyama, the bamboo forest, at an unique vantage point from the comfortable seat of the traditional rickshaw. Sit back and relax as your guide navigates carefully and safely through the traffic as you pass by other iconic sights of Arashiyama such as the Togetsukyo Bridge, the river side with Mt Arashi, charactaristic neighbourhoods and townhouses. Venture north to a quiet and traditional neighbourhood along a pilgrim path leading up the mountain. Get off the rickshaw to enjoy the preserved, traditional houses and landscape at your own pace. Visit one of those Machiya houses (Archive Hall) from the inside. Your guide will continue to explain the sights to you as you make your way to the comical and unique Otagi-Nenbutsuji Temple. On your way back to the rickshaw, stop at one of the thatched tea house for a cup of matcha or traditional sweets (optional). Back on the rickshaw head to your preferred finishing location.

Great trip with knowledgeable & very enthusiastic drivers, Syo & Hirasa. For two hours they took us around Kyoto seeing Kodaiji Temple, Geisha Girls etc. The trip was amazing with great photos taken on our cameras by the drivers.

Dear Marg, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with our guides in Kyoto, exploring the Higashiyama area from the comfortable seats of the rickshaw. A 2 hour tour is a good choice if you are interested in not only experiencing riding on a rickshaw, but also to discover the various neighbourhoods of the Higashiyama area. We hope the pictures taken by your guide will help you remember your rickshaw tour and time in Kyoto for a long time to come! Best Regards, Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw

During the past month of march, we were lucky to hire a guided tour with rickshaw in the Arashiyama area of Kyoto, specifically we visited the bamboo forest. The experience was incredible, absolutely recommended. Our drivers Keita, Kyota and Itikaru treated us with sympathy and cordiality. They were very professionals. Their “must” was the quality of the pictures that they took us during the trip. Today these pictures are an unforgettable memory. A highly recommended tour.

Dear caputxi2004, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us back in March. We are very happy to hear that you had a wonderful time visiting Arashiyama and the bamboo forest with our three guides. Thank you very much for recommending them! Seeing that you took the tour in the spring and writing a review about it in October, it shows how much of an impact and memory you have from then. That is actually quite moving. Here are comments two of your guides wrote in response to your review: Hikaru: "Thank you for the ride the other day. Thank you for the review. I am very happy that you enjoyed your trip to Kyoto with a rickshaw. Please come and visit Japan again." Kyota: "Hi,thank you for taking our rickshaws!We are still running through the bamboo forest. Autumn inKyoto is very good,too‼︎If there are any chances,please visit Japan again." Best Regards, Guide: Hikaru YOSHIDA, Kyota YOSHIDA, Keita IIDA Staff: Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw
