Kyoto Bike Tour
Kyoto station is our meeting point to start our bike tour through the most picturesque areas of this beautiful Japenese city. We will climb on the bicycles, fasten our helmets, and set off towards the Kamo River where you will find beautiful views of the area.
Here you will encounter the Heian-Jingu shrine, constructed in 1894 to commemorate the city's 1100th anniversary. We will follow the pretty canals until we reach the impressive Nanzenji, one of the most important Zen temples in Japan. In the background, you will see the magnificent Higashiyama mountains.
Afterward, we will explore the wonderful Philosopher's Walk, the most popular pathway in Kyoto. If you take the tour in spring, you will be lucky enough to see the striking cherry blossom as you ride along on the bike. Did you know the famous philosopher Kitaro Nishida used to take this route every day to university?
We will return to the original starting point before heading along on pretty canal full of ancient tea houses and traditional bathhouses.
