A city where is full with history and culture. In such a city, ancient traditional daily practices are remained in the backstreets, where usually not put in travel guide books. KCTP cycling tour leads you to explore those Kyoto’s chessboard like backstreet’s culture and custom with professional English speaking guides. Probably, it is the slowest cycling tour in the world, so even senior has no hesitate to join. Let’s explore Kyoto’s little treasure together!

Although we hit Kyoto in the middle of Golden week and the town was unbelievably busy. Our guide Mayko managed to get us around the city and to all the sites advertised on the tour. We had a great day.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
