This tour isn't for people looking to see the big tourist attractions. It takes you through side streets to see Kyoto from a different, more local, perspective. You will walk through alleyways where you'll find architectural gems of every day people. You'll visit local artists...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
