[Virtual Tour] Kyoto Arashiyama & Sagano Tour led by Local Expert


Tour Feature

1. Explore Kyoto’s Arashiyama and Sagano areas, two popular sightseeing regions of Japan, from the comfort of your own home. On this virtual tour, participating is easy! Simply download Zoom onto your device (smartphone, PC, etc.) in advance. When it is time to start, click on the meeting URL, and enjoy the tour online.

2. This virtual tour is led by a National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter in real time. In order to make it so that participating customers feel as if they are strolling around, you will be shown pre-recorded tour footage while a friendly and knowledgeable English-speaking guide provides insights for Japanese culture and sightseeing spots. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to mention them to the guide right then and there!

3. This virtual tour is modeled after a walking tour. At Tenryu-ji Temple, a World Heritage Site, stroll through the beautiful Japanese garden while hearing about Zen Buddhism and the temple’s history. Discover Japan's unique culture of Buddhist vegetarian cuisine and bamboo craftwork. At the Bamboo Grove Path, a symbol of Sagano, we will simulate the experience of riding on a rickshaw!

Take a trip down the shopping arcade lined with souvenir shops, and more!
