Japan Walking Tours

Japan is a beautiful country rich in culture and with a far-reaching and fascinating history. Its cities are futuristic and modern, while its countryside is an array of forests, mountains, and coastal beauty. No matter where you are, a walking tour guide can help you take in all the best sightseeing options.

Tokyo is a cosmopolitan and modern city overflowing with galleries, shopping boutiques, museums, restaurants, and more. With Mt Fuji in sight, it’s also one of the most beautiful cities in the world. On a walking tour, your guide will introduce you to the best sushi spots in town, as well as other local seafood dishes like fukagawa meshi. You can visit a Japanese garden, or the Fukagawa Edo Museum dedicated to the Edo period. History lovers will appreciate the various Buddhist temples and shrines, especially the Goma Rite.

In Kyoto, take a short hike up Daimonji mountain for the best view of Kyoto and Osaka. Visit the Geishas in their traditional wooden homes at Gion Machi, and enjoy the stunning cherry blossoms along Tetsugaku no michi (Philosopher’s Path). There are several temples to appreciate as well, including Ginkakuji, Kinkakuji, and Daitokuji. There’s even a special bamboo forest. A private walking tour in Kyoto will make sure you’re not missing out on seeing something special.

For something different, visit Koyasan, a town designated as a world heritage site thanks to its harmonious infusion of Shinto and Buddhism. Check out the various temples, like Kongbuji with its 400-year-old door paintings and the largest rock garden in Japan. There’s also the Buddhism museum of Reihokan. If you’ve got a spiritual side, a walking tour in Koyasan is the way to go. It’s not hard to fall in love with Japan, and your guide will show you why!
