Kyoto Holidays

The heart of Japan

Kyoto is the spiritual home of Japanese culture, featuring over 2,000 temples with a wealth of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to explore. As famous for its red-leafed maple trees and cherry blossom festivals as it is for its cuisine, be sure to visit a local café for some matcha tea and wagashi, Japanese traditional sweets, or experience the refined culinary tradition of kaiseki dining, Japan’s haute cuisine.  

Explore historic Gion to be hosted by ethereal Geishas and enjoy an authentic Japanese Tea Ceremony. Plus, visit shrines including the Kenninji-Temple and Gio-ji Temple, and stroll through the lush gardens of the historic wooden Nijo-jo Castle.

Combine the traditions of Kyoto with ultramodern Tokyo before embarking on a sightseeing cruise of Lake Ashi, the hot springs of Hakone and the iconic Mount Fuji.
