Consider a very special ten-day sightseeing experience of the incomparably beautiful temples, shrines, gardens, and more in Kyoto, the ancient and modern, cultural capital of Japan. This tour, created and led by former Kyoto resident Carrie Meyer, integrates an optional daily yoga practice* with walking tours of several world-class sights and remarkably ambient places in Kyoto.
Although Kyoto could be an overwhelming experience of what to do if one did not know how to navigate there, Carrie has striven to offer a rich, yet balanced, itinerary and a lovely, while cost-effective, tour. Some of the most fulfilling experiences may include meandering through temples along the Philosopher’s Path, gazing mesmerized at impeccably elegant, masterfully designed Kyoto gardens, appreciating the ancient ambiance and nuanced architecture of preserved Buddhist and Shinto structures, the simple dedication of shrines, whether in high-profile areas or hidden pockets of neighborhoods… Of course, there’s the culinary experience of Japan, traditional arts, museums, modern marvels, shopping, and so much more.
*The yoga practice on the Kyoto tour is offered only once per day due to the rich itinerary of sightseeing activity, which includes a lot of walking.
