Description

Enjoy a guided tour of one of the most celebrated temples in Japan, Kiyomizu-dera, accompanied by a nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual guide.

Founded over 1200 years ago, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is best known for its wooden stage that juts out from its main hall, 13 meters above the hillside below. Among the interesting stories, you can learn on this tour include the traditional construction methods of this stage, notably the absence of any nails. Most impressive of all is the stunning views you can enjoy of the numerous cherry and maple trees below that erupt in a sea of color in the spring and fall, as well as the city views of Kyoto in the distance.

Learn about many more historical and lesser-known sides of this popular temple from your expert guide. A Kyoto excursion is full of value for the time-conscious traveler!
